The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) is now accepting comments as part of its four-year review of the Section 301 duties imposed on China-origin goods. The USTR is seeking comments on, among other topics, how effective the tariffs have been at getting China to change its behavior in the areas found to be problematic in the original investigation; what other actions could be taken; the effect the actions have had on the U.S. economy and specific industries, including the impact on consumers; and whether certain products should be removed (or added) to the list of products subject to the additional duties. This is an opportunity for companies impacted by these actions to advocate for removing the additional duties from specific product categories (and/or expanding the duties to include additional product categories not currently covered). The docket opened on November 15, 2022, and closes January 17, 2023.
