On August 5, 2019 the USTR (United States Trade Representative) announced that product exclusions have been approved for S301 List 3 duties. The product exclusions are broken into ten new product-specific descriptions such as certain plastic containers, pet cages, shopping carts and inflatable kayaks and boats.
The S301 List 3 product exclusions are available for any importer and any product that fits the product description and HTSUS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States) classification, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Please click here to access the notice.
All S301 List 3 product exclusions are retroactive to September 24, 2018. The exclusion process began on June 30, 2019 and requests may be filed through September 30, 2019.
A new tariff number “9903.88.13” will be used to pair with the exclusions.
