The following countries have retaliatory tariffs on specific exports from the United States currently in effect*:

- The United Kingdom
**On May 24, 2021, the United Kingdom announced a preliminary list of retaliatory tariffs in response to the U.S. 232 Steel and Aluminum tariffs of 2018. This list has not yet been implemented, but the United Kingdom has initiated a consultation for input by stakeholders affected by the U.S. 232 tariffs. The United Kingdom notes that ultimately it will apply retaliatory tariffs on just a subset of the products in its proposed list. This website will be updated when these retaliatory tariffs are implemented.
****In June 2021, the European Union and the United Kingdom announced a five year suspension of retaliatory tariffs related to the WTO Large Civil Aircraft dispute with the United States. All tariff lines relevant to the dispute will be suspended while both parties work with the U.S. toward an agreeable resolution to the dispute.
