UPDATE: USTR ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL EXCLUSIONS GRANTED ON SEC. 301 LIST 3 PRODUCTS

On May 4, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative (“USTR”) announced that 146 items will be excluded from the Section 301 trade remedies imposed on Chinese-origin products.  The newly announced exclusions all relate to items on China 301 List 3 (which is part of the $200 billion trade action) which, unless excluded, are currently subject to an additional tariff of 25% ad valorem.  The list of newly-excluded items (which supplements the exclusions previously granted by the USTR) is provided below. The exclusions will be retroactive to September 24, 2018 (the date when the China 301 List 3 additional tariffs took effect) and are slated to remain in effect through August 7, 2020.  Any claims for duty refunds require affirmative action on the part of importers in the form of post-entry corrections or protests (depending upon the liquidation status of the underlying entries).  CBP has also entertained requests to extend the liquidation of entries to allow additional time for the filing of corrections.

Significantly, China 301 exclusions are product-specific, not company-specific.  Thus, if a product is described by an exclusion, the importer may benefit regardless of who filed for the exclusion.  Information as to previously excluded items can be accessed at the end of this notice.

Separately, the USTR is seeking comments identifying additional medical-care items that should be excluded from China Section 301 tariffs in light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak (even if a prior exclusion request on an item has been denied or is pending).  Additional information can be found at: https://www.gdlsk.com/ustr-soliciting-comments-on-the-removal-of-china-sec-301-duties-from-additional-medical-care-products/?highlight=medical.

If your business is interested in seeking a refund of past duties paid under Section 301, and/or discussing Section 301 mitigation strategies, please contact our office and speak with one of our attorneys.
