Arlington, Virginia, USA, 8 July 2018: On July 6, 2018, United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) started collecting Section 301 tariffs on USD 34 billion worth of Chinese exports, while China implemented retaliatory tariffs on USD 34 billion worth of goods exported by the United States, mimicking the United States tariff implementation schedule, AHRI said in a Press communiqué. China released the list of products subject to retaliatory tariffs on June 16, 2018, but AHRI staff did not identify any HVACR or water heating products on that list, the communiqué said.

According to AHRI, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) plans to collect tariffs on an additional 284 tariff lines after the second list undergoes a public comment and review process. China will implement its second list of retaliatory tariffs, if the United States implements its second round of tariffs, the communiqué said.

AHRI said it has analysed the Section 301 tariff lists  and they include the following HVACR and water heating member products:

  • boilers
  • pumps
  • compressors
  • furnaces
  • refrigerators
  • freezers
  • water heaters
  • heat exchangers
  • motors
  • control equipment

According to AHRI, it will file comments urging the USTR to remove all AHRI member products from the second tariff list, during the public comment and review process.
