In another last-minute move, the USTR has announced an extension for 449 exclusions, which had been scheduled to expire on the 31st. These exclusions now are set to expire on May 31, 2024.

The exclusions covered products are currently entered under provisional numbers 9903.88.67 and 9903.88.68 and include 77 exclusions granted to COVID relief-related products. The other exclusions cover a large range of industrial and consumer products.

On January 22, the USTR will open a public docket for comments regarding the current exclusions. You may use this docket for comments either in support of or in opposition to the extended exclusions.

None of the previously expired exclusion sets are impacted by this action.
