The USTR has announced a new set of exclusions to the Section 301 tariffs on China origin goods. This list, the 29th overall, covers goods listed on round three of the additional tariffs which were effective on September 24, 2018.

There are 17 exclusions which were granted at the 10 digit HTS code level while the remainder are limited to the written description. The list covers a wide variety of products including seeds, chemicals, steel containers, portable grills and a limited amount of furniture.

The exclusions will be retroactive to the effective date of the tariffs and are scheduled to expire August 7, 2020 – they will be effective for a relatively short time period. The provisional number assigned to this list is 9903.88.48, which is not yet active in Customs’ system. We expect this will be updated by Friday.

Please take the time to look over this list to see if you may benefit from an exclusion.
