USTR Reinstates 352 Exclusions to China 301 Duties

On March 23, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) made an announcement of reinstatement of 352 of the China 301 duty exclusions that expired last year. These exclusions include 137 from List 1, 59 from List 3 and 87 form List 4a. We should be able to file entries under the exclusion notice as soon as U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) programs ACE for the exclusions. Here is a link to the USTR’s advance copy of the Federal Register Notice (FRN) listing the exclusions.

The exclusions will apply to entries from October 12, 2021 and are in effect until December 31, 2022.  Here is a link to the USTR’s announcement of the exclusions.
