The USTR has announced three more lists of exclusions (see below links) covering items found on Round 1 through 3 of the Sec 301 tariffs. These lists cover a large number of items and at least one list corrects a problem with the way sets are affected by the additional tariffs.
As has been the case with the vast majority of exclusions, each of these is limited to a specific product found under the HTS listed. They are not exclusions broadly given to all items found under the listed HTS code. Please read over the lists and advise if you think your product is covered.
It is our expectation that more exclusions will be forthcoming for these rounds as well as for rounds 4A & 4B, however, there is no time frame.
