Beginning 6 July 2018, China will begin to collect additional duties on 545 imported products from United States including agricultural products, vehicles, and aquatic products. China will also collect additional duties on 114 imported products from United States including chemical products, medical equipment, and energy products. The date of implementation will be announced separately. Currently, the list is available only in Chinese.

The imported products originating in United States will be levied on the prevailing tariff policy basis. The additional imposed tariff duty will be based on a multi-step calculation formula.
