According to the USTR, the product exclusions apply retroactively to entries going back to September 24, 2018 and remain in effect until August 7, 2020. The products affected include fruits, calculators, towers of aluminum, and chairs, among other products.

USTR also issued a new exclusion pertaining to List 1 of the Section 301 tariffs for HTSUS subheading 9030.90.4600, which will apply retroactively to entries going back to July 6, 2018 and remain in effect until October 1, 2020.
