USTR Issues Determination of Reinstatement of Certain Exclusions from China Section 301 Tariffs
WASHINGTON – The Office of the United States Trade Representative today announced its determination to reinstate certain previously granted and extended product exclusions in the China Section 301 Investigation. The determination reinstates 352 of the 549 eligible exclusions. The reinstated product exclusions will apply as of October 12, 2021, and extend through December 31, 2022.
The Reinstated exclusions although approved by the USTR are not available in the CBP system as of today. We are expecting to see an updated from CBP in the following week. Please note Flegenheimer is running reports for applicability of these exclusions to entries filed on or after October 12, 2021 and will be contacting customers directly regarding the process for obtaining duty refunds based on these exclusion. We will be reaching out within the next week to go over details.
The reinstated exclusions are set out in the Federal Register notice, which can be viewed https://ustr.gov/sites/default/files/notices/FRN%20for%20Notice%20of%20Reinstatement.pdf
