Thursday, Sep 24th, 2021
Please join the Export Compliance Training Institute (ECTI) on Thursday, September 24th at 1pm ET, for the online webinar, “Riding the Wave of Current and New Tariffs – Update on US Trade Remedies.” Increased U.S. tariffs on imports of washers, solar panels, aluminum, steel, certain goods from China and the European Union, and a bevy of investigations by the U.S. Government continue to trigger sleepless nights and many headaches for U.S. companies. However, savvy importers are employing a variety of techniques to mitigate the impact of these tariff actions on their supply chains and their bottom lines. This webinar, presented by international trade attorney Melissa Proctor, will update attendees on the latest developments on the U.S. trade remedy front, as well as provide effective strategies for minimizing the impact and supply chain disruptions caused by the ongoing tariff wars. Specific topics will include:
- Understanding of the scope and impact of the Sections 201, 232 and 301 tariffs, tariffs imposed as a result of the EU Civil Aircraft Dispute, as well as ongoing investigations impacting various industry sectors.
- Current Status of Product Exclusions and Extensions.
- Presidential Executive Order 13936 and Its Impact on Imports from Hong Kong.
- Enforcement by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Consequences of Non-Compliance.
- Using classification, country of origin, valuation, and duty deferral rules to mitigate tariff liability.
