Renewed China Tariff/Section 301 Exclusions March 2022

The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced reinstated product exclusions that are valid for entries liquidated from October 12, 2021 and will continue to be excluded through December 31, 2022.

The reinstated exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the product exclusion set out in the digit Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings and product descriptions in the Annex to the Federal Register notice, set to be published on March 28, 2022, but available at this link (see pages 3 through 26).

I expect that the USTR will make new opportunities for new exclusions requests to be filed in the lead-up to the November midterm elections.

Section 301 Exclusion Extensions. Maybe?

The USTR is considering re-opening product exclusions for the 549 exclusions, which mostly expired by December 31, 2020. Comments are due by December 1, 2021.

Details are in the Federal Register notice. This is different from re-opening exclusion requests entirely, but there is some overlap. More information is available on the USTR website (Reinstatement of Certain Exclusions Previously Extended), including a form with the required information.
