Exclusion opportunity

The USTR created a product exclusion process, whereby firms could petition for an exemption from the Section 301 tariff increases for specific imports. The USTR stated that product exclusion determinations would be made on a case-by-case basis.

Comment/exclusion requests/extension requests

The period to request an exclusion has closed, and there are no more open dockets to request extension of an exclusion. The USTR stated the following at the Senate Hearing regarding the president’s 2020 Trade Agenda in June 2020: The USTR is not considering automatic extension of previously approved exclusions. Rather, prior to a group of exclusions expiring, USTR has issued a Federal Register Notice asking the public to comment on whether to extend these particular exclusions for up to one year.

Public dockets
USTR invites interested parties to submit comments on the public dockets listed.
