USTR Extends 352 Expired Exclusions From Section 301 Tariffs on China
The U.S. Trade Representative on March 23 announced the extension of 352 exclusions from Section 301 tariffs on China. The exclusions, all of which had expired, resume effect as of Oct. 12, 2021, and will remain in effect through Dec. 31, 2022, USTR said.
The exclusions include 89 covered under List 1 Section 301 tariffs, 34 under List 2, 187 on List 3 and 42 exclusions covered by List 4, according to a pre-publication notice released by USTR. Most had expired at the end of 2020, but some expired in 2021.
The extensions follow a request for comment from USTR in November asking for input on the extension of 549 Section 301 exclusions that had been previously extended by the agency prior to their expiration. The 352 exclusions extended by USTR will be covered by new subheading 9903.88.67.
