More List 3 Exclusion Requests Granted

Tuesday, December 17, 2019/Categories: News, Government Engagement, Tariffs

The United States Trade Representative (USTR) continues to process the exclusion requests submitted for List 3. ALA and manufacturing members submitted nearly 150 requests of which many are awaiting a final decision.

Last week, USTR granted two new lighting related exclusion requests. They are highlighted in the chart below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a reminder, exclusions granted by USTR can be used by ALA members that import products under the listed HTS codes with the associated product descriptions. Manufacturers should work closely with vendors to ensure that all import related paperwork or electronic transmissions use the granted HTS codes with matching product descriptions. If a product is imported under a granted HTS code but has a different product description, then that product will incur the additional tariff.

List 3 granted exclusions are good for September 24 2019 to August 7, 2020.
