The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (“USTR”) issued extensions for previously granted product exclusions under List 4 of the Section 301 tariffs on imports from China.  USTR is extending the duty exemptions for only 87 of the approximately 248 product exclusions published to date under List 4, allowing for more than 150 to expire on September 1, 2020. The products for which exclusions have not been extended will be subject to the 7.5% tariff beginning on September 2, 2020.

The list of products for which the Section 301 exclusions were extended can be found here.

We encourage clients to review the USTR’s listed extensions and Husch Blackwell’s Section 301 page for the product exclusions expiring September 1, 2020, and to contact our International Trade and Supply Chain team with any questions or concerns.
