On March 23rd, the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced the extension of 352 expired product exclusions from Section 301 China tariffs. 

The extensions are the result of a request for comment by the USTR in November 2021 asking for input on the extension of 549 Section 301 exclusions that had expired.

We suggest reviewing the exclusions available against products imported on October 12th and later for refund opportunities.

Effective Dates: The expired exclusions will resume as of October 12th, 2021, and remain in effect through December 31st, 2022.
