Click & Snap LVT Tariff Exception

Floor Daily reports on Latest Tariff Exception

“Washington DC, November 8, 2019–The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has granted an exclusion from Section 301 tariffs for select types of LVT.  The exemptions are effective immediately. 

Several companies had filed with the U.S. federal government to have this type of flooring excluded from the tariffs–which today are subject to a 25% tariff–on the basis that not enough capacity to supply the demands of this product exist around the world”.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative released the following notice of product exclusions,

“…(3) Floor coverings of polyvinyl chloride, presented in the form of tiles or planks designed to snap together during installation (described in statistical reporting number 3918.10.1000) 

(4) Vinyl floor tiles of polymers of vinyl chloride, designed to click together during installation, each measuring 4.7 mm or more but not over 8 mm in thickness, 18 cm or more but not over 23 cm in width and 120 cm or more but not over 182 cm in length (described in statistical reporting number 3918.10.1000)

(5) Vinyl floor tiles of polymers of vinyl chloride, designed to click together during installation, measuring 7 mm in thickness, 18 cm or more but not over 19 cm in width and 120 cm or more but not over 125 cm in length (described in statistical reporting number 3918.10.1000).”
