Section 301 Tariff Exclusion Requests Granted
China List 3 ($200 billion)
Per the USTR’s Federal Register notices, the product exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the annex to the Federal Register notice, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. The scope of each inclusion is governed by the scope of the 10-digit subheadings and product descriptions listed in the annex, not by the product descriptions set out in any particular request for exclusion.
Product exclusions granted by the USTR are retroactive to September 24, 2018, the effective date of this $200 billion action, and will extend for one year after the publication of the exclusion notice in the Federal Register. The exclusions are available for any product that meets the specified product description, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. The scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the product descriptions set forth in the notice and not by the product descriptions in any particular request.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation.
If you have a pending product exclusion request with the USTR and you are concerned that an entry may liquidate before the USTR renders a decision on the exclusion request, you can:
- Request an extension of the liquidation deadline and file a Post Summary Correction no later than 15 days prior to the extended date of liquidation
- File a protest up to 180 days after liquidation
The USTR will continue to issue decisions on pending requests on a periodic basis.
Product exclusions must be claimed using the new HTSUS subheading 9903.88.13.
