As a reminder, most of the exclusions for List 4A goods are set to expire on September 1, 2020.

On August 28, 2020, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced that only eighty-seven (87) products from all eight rounds of List 4A exclusions published thus far will be granted extensions. Click here to view the full list of List 4A products – including HTS codes and descriptions – that will retain their exclusionary status until December 31st.

Since the USTR failed to extend more than 100 exclusions previously granted to products subject to List 4A tariffs, the exclusionary status of these products will expire on September 1, 2020; effective September 2nd, these products will carry the additional Chinese duties originally assessed.

In order to take advantage of the reduced duties, we encourage any importers of products that are retaining exclusionary privileges to schedule the products to arrive in the US prior to year’s end.  Please contact [email protected] if you would like assistance with this.
