The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has announced new medical supply product exclusions from the third list of Section 301 tariffs. The exclusions will apply retroactively to Sept. 24, 2018 until Aug. 7, 2020.
These new exclusions are reflected in one 10-digit HTSUS subheading, which covers one exclusion request, and 176 specially prepared product descriptions, which cover 202 separate exclusion requests.
The USTR is also requesting comments on medical goods that should be exempt from the tariffs in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. ”Each comment specifically must identify the particular product of concern and explain precisely how the product relates to the response to the COVID-19 outbreak,” the USTR said.
