On Friday, December 16, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced an extension of the 352 product exclusions from Section 301 tariffs on Chinese goods scheduled to expire on December 31, 2022. The new expiration date is September 30, 2023.
The exclusions were initially reinstated in March 2022. According to the USTR, “the extension will help align further consideration of these exclusions with the ongoing comprehensive four-year review.”
The USTR is accepting comments on the tariff headings containing these exclusions through the USTR portal in the four-year review until January 17, 2023.
