The U.S. Trade Representative's (USTR) office has announced it will be reinstating China Tariff Exclusions on 352 items which expired December 31, 2020. These Exclusions cover a wide variety of goods, from crab meat to garden furniture.
The reinstated product exclusions will be retroactive to October 12, 2021 and extend through December 31, 2022. The USTR may consider further extensions beyond December 31, 2022, as they deem appropriate. Once the Tariff Exclusions are implemented, refund claims may be submitted on qualifying imports to recover the applicable China Tariff paid.
