US has sconcluded discussions with the United Kingdom with respect to Section 232 tariffs on US import of UK-produced steel. US will impose a tariff-rate quota on steel products that are melted and poured from the UK and imported from either the UK or further processed in the European Union, which will confer EU country of origin. The aggregate tariff-rate quota volume is specified at 500,000 tonnes. US President Mr Joseph R Biden Jr vide a proclamation on 31 May 2022 announced that in light of my determination to adjust the tariff proclaimed in Proclamation 9705 as applied to eligible steel articles and derivative steel articles that are melted and poured in the UK and imported from either the UK or the European Union, I have considered whether it is necessary and appropriate in light of our national security interests to make any corresponding adjustments to such tariff as it applies to other countries. I have determined that it is necessary and appropriate, at this time, to maintain the current tariff level as it applies to other countries.”The announcement also said that while the Biden administration has considered whether to make corresponding adjustments on Section 232 tariffs on other countries, Mr Biden has determined it is necessary and appropriate to maintain current tariff levels on other sources of US import steel.
