USTR Releases First Round of Section 301 List 3 Product Exclusions
The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) released the first list of HTS subheadings that are partially excluded from Section 301 List 3 tariffs. This notice includes 10 HTS subheadings, which cover 15 separate exclusion requests.
HTS subheadings granted partial exclusion from List 3 25% tariff increase:
- 3923.10.9000, 3923.50.0000, 3926.90.3000, 5402.20.3010, 5603.92.0090, 7323.99.9080, 8716.80.5090, 8716.90.5060, 8903.10.0060 and 8903.10.0060
These exclusions will retroactively apply to all List 3 products meeting the criteria effective September 24, 2018 — the date the U.S. first imposed an additional 10%, and later 25%, tariff on $200 billion in Chinese products. Additionally, importers with eligible products are still able to claim exemption under the new exclusions up to one year from the date the official notice is posted in the Federal Register.
Trans-Border will continue to monitor the situation. If you have any questions, please reach out to Bill Carey, Import Compliance Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 493-9444.
