EXCLUSIONS GRANTED: On July 7, 2020, the USTR announced additional exclusion requests granted to products on List 4A. CBP will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation through its Cargo Systems Messaging Service.
All exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the Annex to each notice and enumerated ten-digit HTSUS classification, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. The scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the product descriptions in the Annex, and not by the product descriptions set out in any particular request for exclusion. Clients may also benefit through filing Post-Summary Corrections or Protests for those entries now covered by a List 3 & List 4A product exclusion to secure refunds plus interest.
Details of the List 4A granted exclusions are below.
LIST 4A: The exclusions granted to List 4A products are reflected in ten-digit HTS subheadings and 61 specially prepared product descriptions, which cover 86 separate exclusion requests, outlined in the Annex to the notice. These exclusions will apply as of the September 1, 2019 effective date of the $300 billion action, and are effective until September 1, 2020.
LIST 1: Additionally, the USTR also announced the extension of 12 of 110 List 1 product exclusions set to expire on July 9, 2020. The extension of these product exclusions is effective until December 31, 2020 and include certain pneumatic actuators, pump casings, pump covers, plastic pump parts, compressors, aluminum electrolytic capacitors, rotary switches, zinc anodes, and weather station sets.
