On June 8, 2020, the United States Trade Representative (“USTR”) issued new product exclusions pertaining to the 7.5% Section 301 List 4A tariffs. The new list of exclusions includes two 10-digit HTS subheadings and 32 specially prepared product descriptions that together cover 55 separate exclusion requests. The full list of excluded products is available here. According to the USTR, the product exclusions apply retroactively to September 1, 2019 and remain in effect until September 1, 2020. The exclusions cover various products, including certain types of gloves, watch components, and TV LCD main board assemblies.
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.
