United States tariffs on $34 billion of China goods came into effect on July 6, 2018. The tariffs applies to 818 Chinese goods, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR).
Announcing the tariffs in June, USTR said the first list of tariffs would target industrial goods, which include industries such as aerospace, information and communications technology, robotics, industrial machinery, new materials, and automobiles.
The list includes several subcategories under the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding Systems, or HS, a coding system that help to standardize the classification of goods around the world.
Here's the first list of $34 billion of goods broken down using the HS codes, via the USTR:
According to USTR, the first set contains 818 lines of the original 1,333 lines that were included on the proposed list published on April 6. These lines cover approximately $34 billion worth of imports from China. USTR has determined to impose an additional duty of 25 percent on these 818 product lines after having sought and received views from the public and advice from the appropriate trade advisory committees. Customs and Border Protection will begin to collect the additional duties on July 6, 2018.
HCI notices that the first list includes most goods which are categorized in HS Code heading 8536, which is:
