Office of the U.S. Trade Representative Announces Duties on European Goods

On October 9, 2019, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) published a notice in the Federal Register, 84 FR 54245, of the final list of products related to trade remedy actions under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974, for large civil aircraft, that will be subject to additional tariffs effective on October 18, 2019. The trade remedy action stems from a dispute filed by the United States in the World Trade Organization (WTO) regarding WTO-inconsistent subsidies provided by the European Union (EU) to the large civil aircraft industry.

Part 1 of the notice applies tariffs at a rate of 10% to “New airplanes and other aircraft (other than military airplanes or other military aircraft), of an unladen weight exceeding 30,000 kg” as provided for in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the U.S. (HTSUS) under subheadings 8802.40.0040, 8802.40.0060 and 8802.40.0070 with countries of origin of France, Germany, Spain or United Kingdom.

Parts 2 through 15 of the notice apply tariffs at a rate of 25% to various products and commodities throughout the HTSUS for various countries of origin throughout the EU.
