U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced an additional 45 day transition period for compliance with the new marking rules for goods of Hong Kong. The 45 days is in addition to the 45 days announced in the original CSMS message (#43633412).

As a result, effective November 9, 2020, CBP will begin enforcement of the new rule requiring importers to ensure that goods produced in Hong Kong are marked to indicate the country of origin of China. This rule will be enforced unless the goods are exempt from marking requirements. Section 301 tariffs will not be assessed on these products.
