USTR ANNOUNCES THE EXTENSION OF CERTAIN EXPIRING CHINA SECTION 301 LIST 1 EXCLUSIONS

On June 1, 2020, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (“USTR”) announced extensions for certain expiring exclusions from the China 301 List 1 tariffs (the $34 billion trade action).

To date, ten sets of exclusions have been issued in connection with List 1. The fifth set of exclusions is scheduled to expire on or about June 3, 2020.  The USTR has announced that the expiration dates of the some such exclusions (see below) will be extended (to now cover the specified goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, through December 31, 2020).

Unless extended under the current action or prior actions, exclusions will expire on their previously scheduled expiration date.  If you have any questions on the status of any particular China 301 exclusion(s), please contact our office.
