UPDATE: 1/4/2024—The CBP has advised they did not have the time over the holiday weekend to re-program the electronic entry system to extend the expiration and will not be able to implement the extension until January 4. This means, at best, any entries filed between January 1-3 that are eligible for exclusions will not get the financial benefit of the exclusions. Post Summary Changes (PSC) will have to be filed after they are programmed in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) to obtain a refund. If you have any questions please reach out to your Mohawk Global Representative.
UPDATE: 12/26/2023—The USTR announced in this unpublished Federal Register Notice, the further extension of the 352 reinstated exclusions and 77 COVID-related exclusions in the China Section 301 Investigation until May 31, 2024, to allow for comments and consideration under the statutory four-year review. In addition, they will open a docket for public comments on existing exclusions on January 22, 2024.
