Industry Update:  25% Tariff Exclusion Process

 

As you are aware from our previous Industry Update , a 25% tariff imposed on goods imported from China went into affect on July 6, 2018. A list of these products can be found HERE.

The United States Trade Representative is providing an opportunity for the public to request exclusion of a particular product from the additional duties. On July 6th, the USTR released a statement outlining that process. An excerpt from that statement follows: 

The exclusion process has the following important dates and features:

  • The public will have 90 days to file a request for a product exclusion; the request period will end on October 9, 2018.
  • Following public posting of the filed request on Regulations.gov, the public will have 14 days to file responses to the request for product exclusion.  After the close of the 14 day response period, interested persons will have an additional 7 days to reply to any responses received in support of or opposition to the request.
  • Exclusions will be effective for one year upon the publication of the exclusion determination in the Federal Register, and will apply retroactively to July 6, 2018.

 

The complete statement from the USTR can be found HERE.

In addition, this article by Susan Kohn Ross at Mitchell Silbergerg & Knupp LLP provides additional information regarding the product exclusion process.
