USTR Grants Extensions to Certain Products from the Fifth Round of Section 301 Exclusions (List 1)

On May 28, 2020, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced that just sixteen (16) exclusions from the fifth round of Section 301 tariff exclusions on List 1 goods will be granted extensions.

As the exclusions for the fifth round of Section 301 goods (covering List 1) were set to expire on June 4, 2020, this means that the sixteen (16) identified products will retain their exclusionary status from additional tariffs until December 31, 2020.

The following sixteen (16) HTS codes that were included in the USTR notice were granted an extension, and they will retain their exclusionary status until December 31st:

  • 8413.50.0010 Oil well and oil field crank-balanced, long-stroke and beam pumps
  • 8413.70.2004 Centrifugal pumps, submersible, other than for use with machines for making cellulosic pulp, paper or paperboard; the foregoing pumps rated not over 15 kW

The USTR failed to mention the remaining products that were included in the fifth round of goods excluded from Section 301 (List 1) tariffs; this leads us to believe that the exclusionary status of these products will expire on June 4, 2020.
