Suspending Normal Trade Relations with Russia and Belarus
On April 8, 2022, President Biden signed into law H.R. 7108, the “Suspending Normal Trade Relations with Russia and Belarus Act.” Effective for shipments entered or withdrawn for consumption on or after April 9, 2022, the rates of duty set forth in Column 2 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) shall apply to all products of the Russian Federation and of the Republic of Belarus.
Pursuant to H.R. 7108, should the President increase the rates of duty applicable to products of the Russian Federation and of the Republic of Belarus above the Column 2 rates of duty, CBP will issue a follow-up CSMS message.
For questions, please contact CBP’s Office of Trade, Commercial Operations, Revenue, and Entry (CORE) Division at OTENTRYSUMMARY@cbp.dhs.gov.
