The United States imposed additional customs duties on imported products from China. However, exclusions from imposition of the additional customs duties were allowed for certain products, as requested by U.S. entities.

  • The first notice [PDF 294 KB] announces the USTR’s determination (set out in an annex to the notice) to correct technical errors in previously announced product exclusions. The amended product exclusions will apply as of September 1, 2019 (the effective date of List 1 of the $300 billion action) and will extend to September 1, 2020.

  • The second notice [PDF 490 KB] announces the USTR’s determination to grant certain exclusion requests (also set out in an annex to the notice) and further corrects technical errors in previously announced product exclusions. The product exclusions will apply as of September 24, 2018 (the effective date of the $200 billion action) and extend to August 7, 2020. The amendments announced in this USTR notice are effective retroactively to the date when the original exclusions were published.
