List 4 – Product Exclusions Accepted till 01/31/2020
The USTR has announced the product exclusion request procedure for the Section 301 tariff action effective 1, 2019 (List 4 A), will be accepted from now through Jan 31, 2020. Please follow this link for more details.
Please follow this web portal for submitting exclusion requests open from Oct 31st and the requests must be submitted by Jan 31 2020. Responses to individual exclusion requests are due 14 days after the request is posted on USTR’s online portal. Any replies to responses to an exclusion request are due the later of 7 days after the close of the 14-day response period, or 7 days after the posting of a response.
As set forth in the notice, “each request specifically must identify a particular product, and provide supporting data and the rationale for the requested exclusion. USTR will evaluate each request on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the asserted rationale for the exclusion, whether the exclusion would undermine the objective of the Section 301 investigation, and whether the request defines the product with sufficient precision.” Any exclusion will be effective for one year, starting from the September 1, 2019 effective date for List 4A. USTR will periodically announce decisions on pending requests.
