First Exclusions Granted for List 3 China Duties

On August 7, 2019, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) published a Federal Register notice granting the first exclusions of products from the 25-percent duty imposed on the third tranche (List 3) of Section 301 tariffs on goods totaling approximately $200 billion. The published notice can be read here.
USTR granted the first List 3 exclusions only a month after it opened the exclusion process on June 30, 2019, and it will continue to accept List 3 exclusion requests until September 30, 2019. Read about the first List 3 exclusions here.
These exclusions will retroactively apply to goods entered into the U.S. as of September 24, 2018, and will also apply for one year after the publication of this notice.
The exclusions are available for any importer whose product meets the specified product description set forth in the annex to this notice, regardless of whether the importer filed any exclusion request or the exclusions had previously been denied.
