USTR Announces Next Steps For Section 301 China Tariffs 4-Year Review


Share this article

The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced a couple of weeks ago in a formal notice the next steps of its statutory four-year review of Section 301 China tariffs.

The USTR is currently seeking public comment through its electronic portal, which started last November 15, until January 17, 2023, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association (RVIA).

The office posted a number of questions in advance before the docket’s opening on November 1, focusing on the Section 301 China actions’ effectiveness in achieving the investigation’s goal, the effects on the U.S. economy and American consumers, and other actions that could take place.

While the comment process’s outcome remains uncertain, participants will still likely have an influence in rebalancing the Section 301 China tariffs, meaning an increase, decrease, or termination of tariffs currently in effect.

The USTR’s announcement does not explicitly state that its call for public comments will cover all four lists, which are List 1 / $34 billion (July 6, 2018); List 2 / $16 Billion (August 23, 2018); List 3 / $200 Billion (September 24, 2018); and, List 4A / $300 Billion (September 1, 2019). 

However, RVIA believes the methodical phrasing of the formal request indicates that this action plan does cover all four lists.

Companies interested in participating in the comment process can contact Senior Manager of Government & Political Affairs Samantha Rocci at [email protected].
