May You Live in Interesting Times. Page through any history book and you will find that the most intriguing and compelling eras were those filled with turmoil, confusion, and uncertainty. But the people living back then, like many of today’s importers, manufacturers, and retailers, would most certainly have traded those exciting times for the slower pace of peace and predictability. To say that the United States’ recent imposition of tariffs on solar panels, steel, aluminum, and numerous Chinese-origin goods has disrupted (or is poised to disrupt) many supply chains is an understatement. U.S. companies are fervently working to understand the new trade environment, apply the new rules, and adopt new strategies for the international marketplace. As even more tariffs affecting additional imported products are being threatened by the U.S. and its trading partners, U.S. companies need to stay up-to-date on the fast-moving developments, assess the potential impact on their operations and international supply chains, and develop workable strategies for succeeding in both the long and short-terms.

This webinar, presented by Melissa Proctor of Miller Proctor Law PLLC, will provide clarity on the scope of the new tariffs, provide U.S. importers, manufacturers, and retailers with a firm understanding of the new requirements, as well as effective strategies for minimizing supply chain disruptions. Specific topics will include:

  • Section 201 Safeguard Tariffs on Solar Panel Imports
  • Section 232 National Security Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum Imports
  • Section 232 National Security Investigations of Automobiles, Automotive Parts, and Uranium
  • Section 301 Unfair Trade Practice Tariffs on Chinese Imports
  • Product Lists
  • Exemptions and Exclusions
  • Key Dates and Deadlines
  • S. Customs Entry and Clearance Requirements for Affected Products
  • Enforcement by U.S. Customs and Border Protection
  • Retaliation by the U.S., Allies, and Trading Partners
  • WTO Challenges
  • Latest Developments
  • Steps that U.S. Companies Can Take to Adapt and Thrive in These Interesting Times

The webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Melissa Proctor, founder of Miller Proctor Law PLLC in Scottsdale, Arizona. For more than 22 years, Melissa has advised companies on a wide array of issues involving compliance with the customs, export, and international trade laws and regulations, as well as embargoes and economic sanctions programs.
