Dear Valued Customer,
 
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has announced the upcoming deadlines for filing Section 301 product exclusions for Lists 1 and 2. USTR prefers that requests for exclusions and comments are filed directly in the regulations.gov portal .
 
Deadlines and Docket Numbers
  • List 1 exclusion requests are due by October 9, 2018 – Docket Number USTR-2018-0025
  • List 2 exclusion requests are due by December 18, 2018 – Docket Number USTR-2018-0032
  • List 3 exclusion requests deadline and docket number have yet to be announced
Product exclusion requests must include the following information: 
  • Identification of the physical characteristics of the particular product (ex – dimensions, material composition, etc.)
  • The 10-digit HTSUS number applicable to the product
  • Information regarding the ability of CBP to administer the exclusion of the product
  • Annual quantity and value of the Chinese-origin good the requester had purchased over the last 3 years, or estimated amounts if not known or unavailable
  • Percentage of gross sales in 2017 the Chinese-origin product had accounted for
USTR also advises that the requester should also address the following in their exclusion request: 
  • Whether or not the product, or a comparable product, may be available in the U.S. and/or third countries
  • If severe economic harm would be caused to the requester or U.S. interests by the additional duties on the product
  • Whether or not the product is related to the “Made in China 2025” or other Chinese industrial programs
USTR’s website provides additional instructions and guidance on how to request a product exclusion for both Section 301 List 1 and 2. It provides links to the product lists, guidance on how to describe your products in your exclusion request, links to the Federal Register publications for each list, and a direct link to the specific docket for each list at regulations.gov If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Milgram-C.H.
