On December 13, 2019, in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #40984510, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that the implementation of additional duties on Section 301 List 4B has been suspended indefinitely.  The 15% additional duties were scheduled to take effect on December 15, 2019 but have been suspended after the successful negotiations of a Phase One agreement with China.

List 4B was outlined in Federal Register Notice (FRN) 84 FR 43304 Annexes C and D as part of Tranche 4, which affected $300 billion in products from China.  Products included on List 4B include various chemicals, handbags and gloves, and various wooden items.
