On September 6, 2023, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) issued a notice that it was extending certain China-related Section 301 product exclusions until December 31, 2023. This action extends 352 exclusions previously reinstated in December 2022 through September 30, 2023, and 77 COVID-related exclusions previously extended in May 2023 through September 30, 2023. For additional information, see Updates of December 16, 2022 and May 15, 2023. The USTR stated that it has extended these exclusions to “provide a transition period for the expiring exclusions and to allow for further consideration under the [statutory] four-year review.”
These extended product exclusions remain available for any product that meets the description in the product exclusion.
