The U.S. Trade Representative has published a third set of exclusions to List 1 of the Chinese 301 tariffs. These products will no longer be subject to the 25% duties imposed on List 1. The exclusions are retroactive to July 6, 2018, and will remain in place until April 17, 2020. Please note this third list of exclusions is product specific rather than based solely on the HTS numbers. Importers are advised to review these items carefully to see if their products may be covered.
The second set of exclusions to List 1 is in effect until March 24, 2020. The first set of exclusions to List 1 will remain in place until December 27, 2019. These lists are also retroactive to July 6, 2018. Please contact Vandegrift for any questions regarding the Chinese 301 tariffs and obtaining refunds for goods on these exclusion lists.
