USTR Extends Section 301 Tariffs Exclusions to Combat COVID-19 to Sept. 30
Compliments of National Customs Broker and Forwarders Assn. NCBFAA
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) said it will extend Section 301 tariff exclusions on certain imports from China through Sept. 30 to support the country’s ongoing efforts to combat COVID-19.
USTR announced an earlier extension of tariff exclusions for 99 medical-care and COVID-19 response product imports from China on Dec. 29, 2020.
USTR said the latest tariff exclusion extension covers these goods when entered for consumption, or withdrawn from a warehouse for consumption, at 12:01 a.m. EST on April 1 and ending at midnight EST on Sept. 30. Each of the article descriptions for HTS headings 9903.88.62, 9903.88.63, 9003.88.64, and 9903.88.65 are modified by deleting “March 31, 2021,” and inserting “September 30, 2021” in its place.
