The National Marine Manufacturers Association will host a webinar next June 10 at 11 a.m. (ET) to provide information on the additional Section 301 tariffs targeting Chinese imports.

After a setback in trade negotiations between the United States and China, the Trump administration raised a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods on List 3 to 25 percent. Items that left China on or before May 10 and arrived in the United States before June 15 were taxed at 10 percent. The administration initiated steps to impose a new 25 percent duty on another $300 billion in Chinese goods on List 4.

The U.S. Trade Representative also released initial details regarding an exclusion process for items on List 3 and announced a public hearing and comment period for List 4. The hearing will be held June 17 in Washington, D.C., and the deadline for submitting a request to appear is June 10.

The webinar will explain what the new tariffs mean for the boating industry, how to file an exclusion request and offer guidance on submitting a request to testify.
