On May 31, 2019, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) extended the amount of time certain goods exported from China have to enter the United States before they will be subject to an additional tariff increase from 10% to 25%.

Shipments exported from China prior to May 10, 2019 will now increase to the additional tariff rate of 25% if they enter the U.S. on or after June 15, 2019. Originally, the tariff increase to 25% would occur if the goods entered the U.S. on or after June 1, 2019.
