Additional Exclusions Granted from China Section 301 List 3 Duties

November 8, 2019 – The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) granted a fourth round of exclusions from Section 301 additional duties on Chinese origin products, found on List 3.

Two exclusions are for the complete Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) number:

  • 8409.91.3000
  • 8708.50.9500

Other exclusions were granted for 34 specific product descriptions.

Together, these exclusions cover 42 separate exclusion requests, and are effective September 24, 2018, through August 6, 2020.

HTS number 9903.88.34 will be used for these excluded products.

Exclusions are available for any product that meets the specific description, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request.

Refunds for duties previously paid, which are now excluded, may be applied for using a Post Summary Correction (PSC) for unliquidated entries; or a Protest for entries liquidated within the past 180 days.

Importers should contact their Livingston Service representative to request any applicable PSCs or Protests be filed.
