For all those impacted by Chinese imports subject to section 301 tariffs, you have until October 9, 2018 to apply for a product exclusion. If you apply for an exclusion, the public will have 14 days to file responses to the request for product exclusion. After the close of the 14 day response period, interested persons will have an additional 7 days to reply to any responses received in support of or opposition to the request.
Approved exclusions will be effective for one year upon the publication of the exclusion determination in the Federal Register, and will apply retroactively to July 6, 2018.
