Are the following sentences acceptable?

I have read that when the verb in the if-clause takes place after that in the main clause, then "will" or "be going to" can be used in the if-clause, or when the futuer verb in the if-clause is anticipated.

A. To be honest, if our product will/is going to fall under the anti-dumping regulations, then the prices we give to you won’t be competitive enough. (The price will be non-competitve if the expectation that it will fall under the regulations is real)

B. If these products will/are going to be examined by the customs, I will change the label before they are exported. (I will change the label if the expectation that customs will examine our products is real)

C. If the enemy will/is going to attack us by imposing sanctions, buying new weapons will be meaningless.(Buying new weapons will be meaningless if the expectation that the enemy will attack us economically is real)

D. The quality is fine for now. But if the components will/ are going to be tested again by the end-user, the current quality of it won’t be satisfactory enough. (The quality will go from fine to unaccepetable if the expecation that they will be tested again by the end user is real)

It's hard to understand what that parenthetical remark means. I would omit it.

呂建德Are the following sentences acceptable? Yes, as shown below.

A. To be honest, if our product will/is going to fall under the anti-dumping regulations, then the prices we give to you won’t be competitive enough.

B. If these products will/are going to be examined by the customs, I will change the label before they are exported.

C. If the enemy will/is going to attack us by imposing sanctions, buying new weapons will be meaningless.

D. The quality is fine for now. But if the components will/ are going to be tested again by the end-user, the current quality of it won’t be satisfactory enough.

Personally, I prefer 'going to' over 'will' in all such cases, if that's of any interest to you.

呂建德A. To be honest, if our product will/is going to fall under the anti-dumping regulations, then the prices we give to you won’t be competitive enough. (The price will be non-competitve if the expectation that it will fall under the regulations is real)
I am going to explain the basics on "zero" condition which seemed to be most of your sentences. You have to decide which condition is applicable.
B. If these products will/are going to be examined by the customs, I will change the label before they are exported. You will have to assume that your shipment will get inspected by customs because it is within the regulation. So it is a zero condition sentence. However, if this is after the fact, then the condition became "unreal". In that case, it is a third conditional sentence. If + past perfect, would/wouldn't have + past participle.
If I had found out about the products inspection, I would have changed the label before....
