Additional duty rates on goods from the USA (CIP9)

Find out which products from the USA are affected by the additional 4.3% Customs Duty, increased from the current rate of 0.45%.

Background

Since May 2005, additional custom duties (in retaliation for Byrd Amendment, also known as the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000) have been applied on the import of certain goods from the USA.

This Customs Information Paper confirms a change to the additional duty rate applied to the list of those goods affected.

From 1 May 2017, the products listed below will be subject to an additional Customs Duty of 4.3%. This is an increase on the current rate of 0.45%.
