US Delays Additional Tariffs on Chinese Good Including Some LED Products

The United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced that addition tariffs on certain Chinese-made consumer items will be delayed until December 15 for avoiding the holiday shopping season, according to President Trumps.

As a result, USTR has announced two new lists for products with extra tariffs effective on September 1, 2019, and those effective on December 15, 2019. Several items were removed from the tariffs list due to health, safety, national security and other factors, according to USTR.

Original list has covered LED products include “Ballasts for discharge lamps or tubes”, “electrical lighting equipment of a kind used on bicycles”, “flashlights”, and a series of electrical filament lamps, as well as LED lamps.

In the updated list, “flashlights”, “electrical filament Christmas-tree lamps” and LED lamps are in the delayed list which will be charged with 10 percent tariffs after December 15, 2019.
