Section 301 Tariff Exclusion Requests Granted China List 1 ($34 billion)

Updated: 9/20/2019

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  so far are retroactive to July 6,. 2018, the effective date of the $34 billion action, and will extend for one year after the publication of the exclusion notice in the Federal Register.

Importers of Record (IOR) may request an administrative refund for products, which were granted an exclusion by the USTR, by filing a Post Summary Correction. Post Summary Corrections may be filed 300 days after release or 15 days prior to liquidation, whichever occurs first.

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.
