The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has released a list of products imported from China subject to additional tariffs as part of the U.S. response to China’s unfair trade practices related to the forced transfer of American technology and intellectual property.  Every single product that is imported into the US is assigned a code called Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS).  Section XVI, chapter 85 defines the HTS codes for every piece of electrical equipment/machinery/accessory.  The HTS code for LED drivers/power supplies is 8504.40.95.

Based upon their respective HTS codes, LED drivers/power supplies from ERP Power are NOT included in any of the lists of products and, therefore, are NOT subject to the China tariff increase which took effect on July 6, 2018.

Here is a USTR fact sheet regarding the tariffs.

ERP Power will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed with any updates.  More information from the USTR is available online at: https://ustr.gov/
