Both the Department of Commerce (for Section 232 global tariffs on aluminum and steel imports) and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (for goods from China and the European Union subject to Section 301 tariffs) accept requests to exclude specific products from the tariffs. These processes offer companies or trade associations an opportunity to explain how and why such goods are critical to the U.S. economy and could not be sourced elsewhere. Many of the requests submitted to date have been approved when a convincing case is made.
