Hong Kong's US-bound exports: New marking rule of goods

Latest guidance provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)

On July 14, the President of the United States issued an Executive Order revoking Hong Kong’s special status. This means that Hong Kong will no longer be treated as a separate customs territory from the Peoples' Republic of China. Goods from Hong Kong should now be entered as products from China. The changes were applicable as of July 29, 2020.

Based on EO 13936, the CBP released a notice on August 11, stipulating that Hong Kong goods for export to the US must be relabeled as ‘Made in China’ instead of ‘Made in Hong Kong’ after the 45-day transition period. On August 21, the CBP extended the transition period to 90 days until November 9, 2020.

This white paper aims to assist US importers and Hong Kong exporters to understand the new marking rule for goods produced in Hong Kong and its impacts on:

  • Product Labeling
  • Customs Clearance
  • Tax & Tariff
