On August 12, 2020, in a press release and a Federal Register Notice (FRN), the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative announced the modification of the list of goods from the European Union (EU) subject to additional duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974.

Per the press release, “USTR is removing from the tariff list certain products from Greece and the United Kingdom and adding an equivalent amount of trade from France and Germany.” The ad valorem duty rates will remain at 15% for aircraft and 25% for other products.

The changes will be effective on September 1, 2020.
