U.S. Proposes Section 301 Tariffs on France

Earlier this week, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) determined that France’s digital services tax discriminates against U.S. companies.  The USTR seeks comment by January 6th, 2020.

The proposal will levy 100 percent tariffs on 63 subheadings of goods made in France.  This includes goods under subheadings 0403, 0404, 0405, 0406, 2204, 3304, 3401, 4202, 6911, and 7323.  If you sell commodities that are classified under these subheadings, please plan accordingly for these extremely high duty rates.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the U.S. Regulatory Team at
