Thirteenth Round of Exclusions Granted for China Section 301 List 3 Products

May 12, 2020 – The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) granted their thirteenth round of exclusions from Section 301 additional duties for Chinese origin products found on List 3.

Two ten-digit Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) were excluded:

  • 4819.50.4060
  • 6902.20.5020

144 product specific exclusions were also granted.

Combined, these new exclusions cover 185 separate exclusion requests.  They are effective September 24, 2018, through August 6, 2020, and will use Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) number 9903.88.46.

Annex B in the notice modified three previously approved product specific exclusions to make technical corrections for exclusions of HTS 4201.00.3000, 4201.00.6000, 7006.00.4050. 7020.00.6000, and 7321.11.1060.

Exclusions are available for any product that meets the 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.
