The exclusions to the Section 301 tariffs on China-origin goods, which are scheduled to expire on September 30th will be extended to December 31, 2023. These exclusions under provisional numbers 9903.88.67 and 9903.88.68 cover over 400 specific exclusions to the additional tariffs.

The US Trade Representative’s Office (USTR) has announced their intent to extend the exclusions, and a formal notice will be published later in the Federal Register. In their announcement, they stated that this action was taken to allow for a transition period for the expiring exclusions and to allow for further consideration under the ongoing four-year review of the overall China 301 program. The action covers only these two exclusion sets; the other expired China 301 exclusions will not be affected.

The required USTR sunset review of the 301 tariffs is expected to result in an extension of the 301 actions, so it remains to be seen if further extensions will be granted.
