Section 301 List 3 Tariff Exclusion Requests Close Sept. 30

Publish date:

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative published a federal notice June 24 laying out the exclusion process for the Trump administration’s third list of tariffs on China.

The USTR estimates that more than 60,000 U.S. stakeholders will request an exclusion for a product, according to Diaz Trade Law.

On May 13, USTR proposed a fourth list, which places a 25 percent tariff on roughly $300 billion worth of goods. The proposed list would include “essentially all products not currently covered” under previously imposed lists.

If a business’s product appears on any Section 301 tariff list, there are three avenues to potentially get it removed: submit a comment, attend public hearings or obtain an exclusion.

Despite Congress mandating USTR to provide an exclusion process by March 17, the USTR is still developing the exclusion process for List 4. Some of the dates in the linked website are outdated for that reason.
