Goods Produced in Hong Kong must be marked with an Origin of China, Starting September 25
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that, effective September 25, 2020, imported goods produced in Hong Kong must be marked with an origin from China. This announcement follows an earlier executive order from the US ending Hong Kong’s special trade status.
The notice provides for new marking requirements under 19 U.S.C 1304 for goods from Hong Kong. No changes have been announced with regards to duty collection and entry filing. Also, for country of origin determinations, Hong Kong is still a valid designation.
CBP will continue to provide the industry with further updates to the new rules if and when there are additional changes.
The full notice from the Federal Register can be found here.
Trans-Border will continue to monitor the situation. If you have any questions, please reach out to Bill Carey, Import Compliance Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 493-9444.
