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

On July 8, 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 sixth set of exclusions is scheduled to expire on July 9, 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of the some such exclusions (see below) will be extended (to now cover the specified goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, through December 31, 2020 which is consistent with recent statements by the USTR to not grant exclusions / extensions beyond the end of this year).

Unless extended under the current action or prior actions, exclusions will expire on their previously scheduled expiration date.  By way of context, only 12 out of the 110 exclusions covered by List 1 / Tranche 6 (see Exclusions Granted July 9, 2019) have been extended.  If you have any questions on the status of any particular China 301 exclusion(s), please contact our office.
