TRADE NEWS: Congress Requests Product-Specific Exclusion Process From USTR

Posted by Ascent Global Logistics on Feb 19, 2019 12:23:38 PM

Congress has requested that the office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) create the formal exclusion process for products outlined under the S301 List 3 tariffs. These tariffs for $200 billion worth of imports from China are scheduled to increase from 10 percent to 25 percent on March 2, 2019.

Congress calls for the USTR to create a process that includes the same exclusionary process as S301 Lists 1 and 2. According to an official statement from the US government, USTR will be required to report the process to Congress by March 17, 2019.
