Section 232 Tariffs on Steel & Aluminum
Effective June 1, 2018, additional tariffs of 25 percent and 10 percent on steel and aluminum imports were imposed for almost all countries. As of May 20, 2019, steel and aluminum products from Canada and Mexico are not subject to the additional tariffs. The following products are covered by these proclamations.
• steel articles classified under HTSUS subheadings 7206.10 through 7216.50, 7216.99 through 7301.10, 7302.10, 7302.40 through 7302.90, and 7304.10 through 7306.90, including any subsequent revisions to these HTSUS classifications
• the following aluminum articles: (a) unwrought aluminum (heading 7601); (b) aluminum bars, rods, and profiles (heading 7604); (c) aluminum wire (heading 7605); (d) aluminum plate, sheet, strip, and foil (flat rolled products) (headings 7606 and 7607); (e) aluminum tubes and pipes and tube and pipe fitting (headings 7608 and 7609); and (f) aluminum castings and forgings (HTSUS 7616.99.5160 and 7616.99.5170), including any subsequent revisions to these HTSUS classifications
Countries and/or companies negatively impacted by these additional tariffs can petition for an exclusion. In June 2019, the BIS announced a new online portal to facilitate the submission and management of Section 232 exclusion requests, objections to exclusion requests, rebuttals, and surrebuttals. All new Section 232 exclusion requests must be submitted through this portal beginning June 14.

Section 232 Investigation of Automobiles & Auto Parts
The Department of Commerce announced May 23, 2018 its self-initiation of an investigation under section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 to determine whether imports of automobiles (including SUVs, vans, and light trucks) and auto parts are harming U.S. national security. The results of the investigation were submitted to President Trump on February 17, 2019.

On May 17, 2019, President Trump announced that he is delaying a decision for 180 days. During that time the U.S. plans to hold talks with the European Union, Japan, and possibly others that will likely seek to reduce imports from those countries. According to the proclamation, the DOC determined that U.S.-owned auto producers’ share of the domestic and global markets has fallen sharply in recent decades, which decreases the sales revenues that enable the research and development expenditures necessary for long-term automotive technological superiority, which in turn is essential for national defense.

Section 232 Investigation of Uranium
President Trump will not impose tariffs or quotas on uranium imports.

The Department of Commerce announced July 18, 2018 its self-initiation of an investigation under section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 to determine whether the present quantity and circumstances of uranium ore and product imports threaten to impair U.S. national security. In April 2019, the department determined that imports of uranium are threatening U.S. national security.

However, a July 12, 2019 presidential memorandum states that while the report’s findings “raise significant concerns…a fuller analysis of national security considerations with respect to the entire nuclear fuel supply chain is necessary at this time.” To that end, the memorandum establishes the United States Nuclear Fuel Working Group, but declines to adjust imports through tariffs and quotas.

Tariffs on the EU – Aircraft Dispute
In May 2019, the World Trade Organization ruled that European Union subsidies to Airbus have caused adverse affects to the United States. On April 8, 2019, USTR identified a preliminary list of EU products to which additional duties may be applied. The estimated import value of the goods on the preliminary list was approximately $21 billion in 2018. On July 5, 2019, USTR identified a second list of EU products, with a value of approximately $4 billion, that may be subject to additional duty. The products can be found here.

USTR estimates the harm from the EU subsidies at $11 billion in trade each year, but the EU has challenged that figure. A final decision from a WTO arbiter is expected this summer, and the final list subject to additional duty will reflect only the amount of trade found to be adversely affected in the arbitrator’s decision.

Importers with goods on these lists should consider taking proactive measures to mitigate the impact of any potential tariff increase, such as working to have their products omitted from the final list or considering alternative sourcing locations. For assistance in this effort, please contact Kristen Smith at (202) 730-4965.

The EU has published their own preliminary list of U.S. products on which the EU could impose additional tariffs of up to 100 percent as part of this dispute, which you can find here and in the Retaliatory Actions section below.

Tariffs on Mexico (indefinitely suspended)
No additional tariffs related to border security are in effect or are currently scheduled to go into effect.

On the evening of May 30, 2019 in an effort to push Mexico to address immigration issues, the White House announced that a 5% tariff would be imposed on goods from Mexico effective June 10, with the rate increasing by 5% each month, up to 25%. On Friday, June 7th, President Trump announced that the tariff was “indefinitely suspended” in light of a bilateral agreement to work toward a “durable solution” on “irregular migration” from Mexico to the U.S.
