Section 301 China Duties Extension of Product Exclusions
On March 10, 2021, the USTR published 86 FR 13785, extending the 99 product exclusions that were granted or extended by 85 FR 85831 to address ongoing efforts to combat COVID-19.
The product exclusions that were initially set to expire on March 31, 2021 will be extended through September 30, 2021.
The exclusions listed are available for any product that meets the description as set out in the Annexes to 85 FR 85831, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the 10-digit HTS headings and product descriptions provided in the Annexes to 85 FR 85831, not by the product descriptions set out in any particular request for exclusion.
The functionality for the acceptance of the extended product exclusions will be available in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) as of 7 am eastern standard time, March 16, 2021.
