The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has decided to extend 137 exclusions covered under List 1, 59 exclusions on List 2, 266 exclusions on List 3, and 87 exclusions on List 4. Except for exclusions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of these exclusions have expired. Specifically, the exclusions for most of these products expired by December 31, 2020, and the remaining exclusions expired in 2021.
The reinstated product exclusions will apply retroactively as of October 12, 2021 and extend through December 31, 2022. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation. More information can be found on USTR’s website.
