Our sources advise that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has stated that preparations for an exclusion process for the third tranche of tariffs (List 3) applied to goods from China under Section 301 are currently underway and the process will be launched by the end of the month. 

List 3 covers $200 billion worth of products from China at a 10% duty rate. USTR established exclusion processes for the first two rounds of tariffs last fall.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely. For more information on the Section 301 tariffs on China, please contact Robert Stang, Jeffrey Neeley, Nithya NagarajanCortney Morgan, or Beau Jackson.
