U.S. product exclusions extended, imports from China

U.S. product exclusions extended, imports from China

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) today released for publication in the Federal Register a notice of product exclusion extensions with regard to the additional 10% customs duties imposed pursuant to the $300 billion (Section 301) investigation of China’s acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation.

Certain exclusions from the additional 10% customs duty are scheduled to expire September 1, 2020. According to today’s notice [PDF 256 KB], the USTR has determined to:

  • Extend those identified product exclusions that were granted under the $300 billion action (and listed in annexes to today’s notice)
  • Extend the exclusions from September 1 through December 31, 2020

To date, the USTR has granted more than 6,800 exclusion requests, has extended some of these exclusions, and indicates it may consider further extensions of exclusions.

The exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the annexes, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the 10-digit Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) headings and product descriptions in the annexes to today’s notice, and not by the product descriptions set out in any particular request for exclusion.
