USTR Issues Fifth Round of Section 301 List 1 Product Exclusions

On June 3, the USTR unofficially released yet another list of HTS subheading that are either partially or completely excluded from Section 301 List 1 tariffs – making it the fifth round of exclusions issued thus far.

The official notice contains one (1) HTS subheading completely excluded from 25% tariffs, and eighty-eight (88) partially excluded HTS subheadings, which cover another 464 requests respectively.

The latest round of exclusions will retroactively apply to all products meeting the specified criteria effective July 6, 2018 – the date the U.S. first imposed an additional 25% duties on $34 billion of Chinese products. As was the case with other exclusions, all importers who have an eligible product are still able to claim an exemption under the new exclusions for up to a year from the date the official notice is posted in the Federal Register.

The list of HTS subheadings that have been completely excluded from the List 1 25% tariffs is as follows:

  • 8537.10.8000

The list of HTS subheadings that have been granted partial exclusion from the List 1 25% tariffs are as follows:
