China 301 Tariff Update

List 3 Tariffs Increased to 25% on May 10, List 4 Announced

USTR has posted Federal Register notices increasing List 3 tariffs to 25% and announcing the process for List 4 tariffs. Nearly every component, material, and finished good is impacted. Information about an exclusion request process for List 3 is forthcoming. An effective date for imposition of List 4 tariffs will be announced after the June 17th public hearing. To date, we have been able to secure more exclusions for baby products than any other industry but we need your help!

Manufacturers are encouraged to contact Meredith Birkhead at if your products will be impacted along with the corresponding HTS code(s). Media can direct questions to Kelly Voelker at

JPMA remains active on the Executive Committee of the Americans for Free Trade Coalition, to fight against imposition of China 301 Tariffs. Read more about this initiative here.

Help Spread the Word

301 tariffs have significantly impacted the baby products industry, and put babies and children at risk by making life-saving products like car seats, cribs and many others less accessible. We need your help to ensure this message gets out to assist with our advocacy and request for an exemption process.

Starting immediately, please share this graphic on all of your social media outlets using the hashtag #nobabytariffs, and forward to anyone you know who will help spread the word!!! We've included some ideas for posts below (or feel free to use them as-is)!

"Baby products must be exempt from the China 301 tariffs! These products save lives and protect our children. #nobabytariffs"

"Tariffs on baby products put our babies and children at risk. #nobabytariffs"
