Trade Minister Wilbur Ross said the new rule represents another important step aimed at "creating space for American companies and workers."
In addition to China, the new base may put other countries' products at risk of increasing tariffs, including Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam and Switzerland.
