USTR Publishes Additional List of Proposed HTS Numbers for EU Retaliatory Duties

The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has issued a Federal Register Notice (FRN) announcing the proposed list of additional products which would be subject to additional duties for goods made in the European Union (EU). These additional duties are in connection with the enforcement of the World Trade Organization (WTO) decision in favor of the United States in its disputes with the EU over subsidies provided for civil aircraft. The proposed additional duties could be up to 100% of the entered value of the goods.
The FRN contains a proposed list of 89 additional items to be included to the original list which was published on April 12, 2019. The USTR is requesting comments on this proposed list and issues instructions on how to submit comments in the FRN. There will also be a hearing on August 5 regarding the new list. Applications to participate in the hearing must be filed by July 24.
The new FRN issued on Friday can be found on the U.S. Government Publishing Office’s website. The FRN with the original list from April 12 can be found on the USTR website.
