USTR has extended these product exclusions from March 31, 2021 to September 30, 2021. The product exclusions were previously extended and modified on December 29, 2020. These products include radiotherapy and X-ray components, hand soaps and sanitizers, facemasks and gloves, and more. Please see USTR’s December notice of product exclusion extensions and additional modifications for full descriptions of the ninety-nine (99) listed products of China currently exempt from additional Section 301 tariffs until September 30, 2021.
