On April 12, 2019, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) published a notice of a proposed 100% ad valorem duty on various products from the European Union (EU) or certain member states.  The notice invites public comment on the preliminary list of products to be covered by such duties, which can be accessed at https://ustr.gov/sites/default/files/enforcement/301Investigations/Preliminary_Product_List.pdf

If you import products on the list you may wish to: (1) submit written comments (due May 28, 2019); and/ or (2) testify at a public hearing on May 15, 2019 in Washington, D.C. (requests to appear are due May 6, 2019).

You may wish to explain why the product you import should not be subject to these extra duties.  Special consideration will be made where the duties on a particular product might have an adverse effect upon U.S. stakeholders, including small businesses and consumers.

If you require further information or need assistance submitting comments or testifying, please contact Evelyn Suarez, Esq. at esuarez@suarezfirm.com or 202.552.0310.
