Arlington, Virginia, USA, 3 July 2018:  On June 29, 2018, Canada released its final retaliatory tariff list for a variety of goods, in response to United States Section 232 tariffs, AHRI said in a Press communiqué. The tariffs will be effective from July 1, 2018, the communiqué said.

According to AHRI, it has analysed Canada’s final retaliatory tariff list and identified the following member equipment:

  • 8418.10.90: Combined refrigerator ­freezers, fitted with separate external doors: Other (10% tariff,; this tariff line includes commercial and residential products)
  • 8419.19.00: Instantaneous or storage water heaters, non­electric: Other (10% tariff)
  • 8418.10.10: Combined refrigerator ­freezers, fitted with separate external doors: Absorption­ type, combination gas and electric powered, designed for permanent installation in recreational vehicles and for use in the manufacture of such vehicles (10% tariff)

Although the last item in the list does not appear to reference member equipment, members should examine it thoroughly due to its categorisation, the communiqué said. Notably, Canada did not include “9032 – Automatic regulating or controlling instruments and apparatus”, which was included in the preliminary list, in its final tariff list, the communiqué further said. In a related development, Chrystia Freeland, Foreign Minister, Canada, announced an aid package for the country’s steel and aluminum industry, the communiqué added.

The communiqué also said that AHRI encourages members to review the final tariff list carefully for any products not included in its analysis.
