Section 301 List 3 Exclusions Extended

Two hundred and sixty six (266) products from the List 3 exclusions have been extended until the end of the year. Effective September 24, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) imposed additional 10% ad valorem duties on imports from China classified in 5,757 full and partial subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of $200 billion and increased that duty rate to 25% in May 2019. This list is also known as the Section 301 List 3 imports from China. Moreover, the USTR, initiated an exclusion process on June 24, 2019, and as of August 2020, has granted 15 sets of exclusions for products on Section 301 List 3 imports from China.

Product Exclusion Extensions

As mentioned before, some of these product exclusions have been extended until December 31, 2020. Therefore, importers can continue to import the items listed below without the added 10% duty by using HTS number 9903.88.56. If an importer has imported product between September 24, 2018 and August 7, 2020 on the original List 3 product exclusions mentioned above, it is eligible for a refund from U.S. Customs through a post summary correction. [You can search for your tariff number here.] However, if the entry is already liquidated, importers have 180 days to protest the exclusion. Already have a headache? Scarbrough can help!

Products and HTS numbers Effected:

The USTR has determined to extend the specific exclusions listed below through December 31, 2020 if entered into commerce on August 7, 2020 or after. The exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the Annex, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Again, use HTS 9903.88.56.

Background

On August 18, 2017, USTR initiated an investigation into certain acts, policies and practices of the Government of China related to technology transfer, intellectual property and innovation (82 FR 40213). During the investigation, the Trade Representative determined that the acts, policies and practices of China under investigation are unreasonable or discriminatory and burden or restrict U.S. commerce, and are thus actionable under Section 301(b) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (Trade Act). In response, President Trump initiated a number of actions which imposed ad valorem tariffs on certain imports originating in China.  Four separate lists have been announced.  To view the most up to date information, check out our debriefing on Section 301 Imports from China.  This post indicates effective dates, duty rates, and more.
