Requests for tariff exclusions will be accepted starting Oct. 31

Publish date:

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative announced that on Oct. 31 it will start accepting tariff exclusion requests for Chinese products that are subject to an additional 15 percent tariff (Section 301 List 4A), which went into effect Sept. 1.

Exclusion requests will be received through the USTR’s online portal, and details regarding the process will be published in the Federal Register this week.

Floating docks, fishing gear and water-sports equipment are included in Section 301 List 4A, and the National Marine Manufacturers Association is encouraging affected members to submit exclusion requests. NMMA said that for prior lists, USTR has leaned toward providing decisions to requests received early in the process.
