HOW CAN I REQUEST AN EXCLUSION?

Interested shippers may request exclusions from the Section 301 Second List tariffs– implemented on August 23, 2018 – must provide the following information:

  • identification of the product in terms of the physical characteristics that distinguish it from other products within the covered eight-digit HTSUS subheading
  • ten-digit HTSUS number;
  • annual quantity & value of Chinese-origin product the requester purchased for each of the previous three years;
  • for imports sold as final products, the percentage of the requester’s total gross sales in 2017 that sales of the Chinese-origin product accounted for;
  • for imports used in the production of final products, the percentage of the total cost of producing the final product(s) the Chinese-origin input accounts for and the percentage of the requester’s total gross sales in 2017 that sales of the final product(s) accounted for;

The submission must also detail:

  • whether the product is available only from China and if a comparable product is available from sources in the U.S. and/or third countries;
  • whether the additional tariff on the product would cause severe economic harm to the requester or other U.S. interests
  • whether the product is strategically important or related to “Made in China 2025” or other Chinese industrial programs

Exclusion requests must be submitted directly to the Office of the United States Trade Representative by the December 18, 2018 deadline.

ARE PRODUCTS OF HONG KONG SUBJECT TO THE ADDITIONAL SECTION 301 DUTIES?

At this time, the additional duties imposed by the Section 301 remedy only apply to articles that are products of the People’s Republic of China. Imported goods that are legitimately the product of Hong Kong or Macau are not subject to the additional Section 301 duties.

ARE SECTION 301 DUTIES ELIGIBLE FOR DRAWBACK?

Yes

HOW ARE GOODS SUBJECT TO THE SECTION 301 DUTIES TREATED WHEN THEY ARE ADMITTED INTO A FOREIGN TRADE ZONE?

Per the Federal Register Notice published by the USTR, any product covered by the Section 301 remedy (except any product that is eligible for admission under ‘domestic status’ as defined in 19 CFR 146.43) which is subject to the additional duty imposed and that is admitted into a U.S. foreign trade zone on or after 12:01 am EST on July 6, 2018, only may be admitted as ‘privileged foreign status’ as defined in 19 CFR 146.41. Such products will be subject upon entry for consumption to any ad valorem rates of duty or quantitative limitations related to the classification under the applicable HTSUS subheading.

At this time, products covered by the Section 301 remedy that were admitted as “privileged foreign status” prior to July 6, 2018, will not be subject to the additional duties; products admitted on or after July 6, 2018, may only be admitted as “privileged foreign status,” unless eligible for admission under “domestic status.”

ARE PRODUCTS ENTERED UNDER THE SECTION 321 DE MINIMIS EXEMPTION SUBJECT TO SECTION 301 DUTIES?

The USTR has issued a Federal Register Notice outlining the process by which U.S. stakeholders may request that particular products classified within an HTSUS subheading currently subject to the Section 301 remedy be excluded from the additional Section 301 duties.  The procedures to request a product exclusion can be found above.

For further information, please refer to the USTR’s Notice of Action and Request for Public Comment Concerning Proposed Determination of Action Pursuant to Section 301: China’s Acts, Policies, and Practices Related to Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property, and Innovation, 83 FR 28710 (June 20, 2018); and the August 16, 2018 Notice of Action Pursuant to Section 301, 83 FR 40823 (August 16, 2018).

Questions related to Section 301 entry filing requirements should be emailed to traderemedy@cbp.dhs.gov. Questions from the importing community concerning ACE rejections should be referred to their Client Representative.
