As more decisions are made around the Section 301 tariffs, changes go into effect for the products included in the Section 301 Lists. As of January 11, 2019, the Section 301 - HTSUS Lookup Tool has been updated to reflect these changes.
Exclusions Announced for List 1:
As of December 28, the USTR has anounced exclusions that have been granted on items included on List 1 of the Section 301 tariffs on imports from China. The list of exclusions for List one includes seven existing 10-digit HTSUS subheadings and 24 specified product descriptions (described in 14 statistical reporting numbers). Learn more about the items excluded.
These exclusions are effective for goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on July 6, 2018. However, according to CBP, updates to ACE to reflect the tariff exclusions will not be implemented until ten business days after the shutdown has concluded.
Updates Announced for List 3:
To reflect changes to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule that went into effect Oct. 1, the USTR has removed 14 HTSUS subheadings from, and adding 38 subheadings to, the list of those subject to the Section 301 additional tariff on imports from China. U.S. Customs and Border Protection states that these changes are effective with respect to goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after 12:01 am EDT on Oct. 1.
In addition, effective with respect to goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after 12:01 am EDT on Sept. 24, HTSUS subheadings 0304.81.10 and 0304.81.50 are no longer subject to the Section 301 additional tariff. CBP states that any importer of such goods on which a Section 301 duty was assessed on or after Sept. 24 can request a refund by filing a post-summary correction.
