As reported by Chris Gillis | Apr 17, 2019 of American Shipper, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative will allow Section 301 tariff exclusions for 21 additional product types covering 348 exclusion requests.
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has released its third round of imported products from China that are now exempt from the so-called Section 301 tariffs.
On July 6, the Trump administration imposed tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports as part of its Section 301 investigation of China’s trade policies. At the same time, however, it allowed U.S. companies to seek exclusions for their Chinese imports — if they could show that the products are only available from China, the tariffs cause “severe economic harm” and the products are not strategic to the “Made in China 2025” or other Chinese industrial programs.
