Today, August 13, 2019, The United States Trade Representative announced that certain products such as cell phones, laptops, video games consoles, certain toys, some clothing and shoes are being removed from the forthcoming tariff list based on health, safety, national security, and other factors. These items will not face the additional tariffs of 10 percent which were planned to take effect September 1st. They will be delayed until December 15. The list of the items that will still be affected by the tariff on September 1st has been updated.

The exact details along with the lists of the tariff lines that are affected have been posted to the Federal Register. An exclusion process for these products will shortly be released as well.
