UPDATE: 8/21/20—CBP has announced a 45-day extension for the transition of Hong Kong goods to be marked as a product of China. The new effective date is November 9, 2020.

Starting September 25, 2020 goods produced in Hong Kong will need to be marked as a product of China, according to a notice from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This change is a result of the executive order back in July that ended Hong Kong’s preferential treatment. It is still unclear if Section 301 tariffs will apply to these products.
