More China List 1 Goods Excluded from Section 301 Tariffs; Retroactive Refunds Available

Tuesday, June 04, 2019
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Dozens more goods have been excluded from the additional 25 percent duty imposed on some $34 billion worth of imports from China (List 1 goods). These exclusions cover one HTSUS subheading and 88 specially prepared product descriptions and reflect about 464 separate exclusion requests.

The exclusions will be retroactive to July 6, 2018, and remain in place until June 4, 2020. They must be claimed using new HTSUS subheading 9903.88.10.

Importers should review the list of affected goods (see below for general overview and attached notice for full details) and apply for refunds of any tariffs paid on such goods since July 6, 2018. The exclusions are available for any product that meets the specified product description, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. The scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the product descriptions set forth in the attached notice and not by the product descriptions in any particular request for exclusion.

For more information on Section 301 tariffs, including exclusions and how to apply for duty refunds, please contact trade consultant Nicole Bivens Collinson at (202) 730-4956 or trade attorney Kristen Smith at (202) 730-4965.
