SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Section 304 of the Tariff Act of 1930 as amended (19 U.S.C. 1304), 
provides that, unless excepted, every article of foreign origin (or its 
container) imported into the United States shall be marked in a 
conspicuous place as legibly, indelibly, and permanently as the nature 
of the article (or its container) will permit, in such a manner as to 
indicate to the ultimate purchaser in the United States the English 
name of the country of origin of the article. Failure to mark an 
article in accordance with the requirements of 19 U.S.C. 1304 shall 
result in the levy of a duty of ten percent ad valorem. Part 134 of 
title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR part 134), 
implements the country of origin marking requirements and exceptions of 
19 U.S.C. 1304.
    On June 5, 1997, the U.S. Customs Service (U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection's predecessor agency) issued a Federal Register notice that 
goods produced in Hong Kong should continue to be marked to indicate 
their origin as ``Hong Kong'' under 19 U.S.C. 1304 after Hong Kong's 
reversion to the sovereignty of the People's Republic of China (China) 
on July 1, 1997. See 62 FR 30927 (June 5, 1997).
    On July 14, 2020, the President issued Executive Order 13936 on 
Hong Kong Normalization. See 85 FR 43413 (July 17, 2020). Pursuant to 
section 202 of the United States-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992 (22 
U.S.C. 5722), the President suspended the application of section 201(a) 
of the United States-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992, as amended (22

after September 25, 2020, must be marked to indicate that their origin
