The Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (Pub.L. 87–794, 76 Stat. 872, enacted October 11, 1962, 19 U.S.C. § 1801) is an American trade law.


Congress granted the White House unprecedented authority to negotiate tariff reductions of up to 80%. It paved the way for the Kennedy Round of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade ("GATT") negotiations, concluding on June 30, 1967, the last day before expiration of the Act.[1]

On April 27, 2017, President Donald Trump ordered a review of the aluminum imports and threats to National security under the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.[2][3][4][5][6]
