Requests for product exclusions from the second tariff list were due September 30, 2019. USTR is no longer accepting product exclusion requests for List 3.
Products that have been granted exclusion are linked in USTR’s notices below with their corresponding Customs and Border Protection notices on how to operationalize exclusions:
Exclusions are be made on a product basis and apply to all imports of the product, regardless of whether the importer filed a request. However, different products under the same HTS heading may not all be covered under the one exclusion.
Please review the full notice to confirm if your HTS code is on the list. The exclusions are retroactive to when the tariff went into effect.
