On December 23, 2019, the Office of the US Trade Representative (USTR) published in the Federal Register a notice announcing USTR’s determination to extend certain exclusions from the additional duties imposed in the Sec. 301 investigation that are scheduled to expire on December 28, 2019. The product exclusion extensions listed in the Appendix to the notice under US note 20(h) to subchapter III of chapter 99 of the HTSUS: (2), (7), (11), (29), (30), and (31), will apply as of December 28, 2019 and extend for one year. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation. In accordance with the July 11 notice, the exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the Annex, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the 10-digit HTSUS headings and product descriptions in the Annex to this notice, and not by the product descriptions set out in any particular request for exclusion.
