US unveils final list of China tariffs

Frozen Alaska pollock and frozen cod fillets seem to have escaped the final list.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) released its final list on Monday of approximately $200 billion (€171.3 billion) worth of Chinese imports that will be subject to additional tariffs.

The new tariffs will be effective starting Sept. 24 and initially will be in the amount of 10 percent.

Starting Jan. 1, 2019, the level of the additional tariffs will increase to 25 percent.

The list contains 5,745 full or partial lines of the original 6,031 tariff lines that were on a proposed list of Chinese imports announced on July 10.

Changes to the proposed list were made after USTR sought and received comments over a six-week period and testimony during a six-day public hearing in August.

As a result, the USTR decided to fully or partially remove 297 tariff lines from the original proposed list.

Included among the products removed from the proposed list, are frozen Alaska pollock fillets and frozen cod fillets.

A formal notice of the $200 billion (€171.3 billion) tariff action will be published shortly in the federal register.
