CSMS# 19-000155- Submitting Imports of Second Group of Products Excluded from Section 301 Duties

On March 25, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative will publish a Federal Register Notice announcing the decision to grant the second group of certain exclusion requests from the 25 percent duty assessed under the Section 301 investigation related to goods from China (Tranche 1). The product exclusions announced in this notice will be retroactive as of the July 6, 2018 effective date (see 83 FR 28710). The exclusions will extend for one year after the March 25, 2019 Federal Register notice. The exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the Annex to the Federal Register notice, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the 10-digit headings and product descriptions in the Annex, and not by the product descriptions set out in any particular request for exclusion. The functionality for the acceptance of the second group of products excluded from Section 301 duties will be available in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) on March 22, 2019. Read More →
