On October 5, 2021, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced that it would accept comments on the possible reinstatement of certain expired Section 301 product exclusions.1 However, not all expired exclusions are eligible for renewal — rather, USTR is accepting comments on the renewal of only 549 previously extended exclusions.
Companies that import products under the 549 previously extended exclusions should consider submitting comments to USTR in favor of renewing those exclusions. Those that import other products subject to Section 301 tariffs should continue to monitor USTR’s announcements for potential expansions of the product exclusion process. Sidley is happy to assist in these efforts.
