On April 7, 2020, the United States Trade Representative (“USTR”) issued one-year extensions for some product exclusions that were granted in April 2019.  The extensions cover eight product exclusions that were due to expire on April 18, 2020, including exclusions for roller machines for paper, aluminum pipe brackets, and instruments for measuring voltage.

Any product exclusions from the original April 18, 2019 exclusion notice that is not listed in the extension notice will expire April 18, 2020. Those products will become subject to a Section 301 tariff of 25 percent pursuant to List 1.

We encourage clients and companies to review the listed exclusions and contact Husch Blackwell’s International Trade and Supply Chain Team with any questions or concerns.
