Guidance Regarding Products Covered Both in the COVID Exclusion Notices and the Notices Concerning Possible Reinstatement of Previously Extended Exclusions

On August 27, 2021 USTR opened a docket for public comments on the possible extension of the 99 exclusions for COVID-19 response products (86 FR 48280).  On October 5, 2021, USTR announced that it was starting a review to possibly reinstate 549 previously-extended exclusions (86 FR 56345).  Of the 549 exclusions USTR is currently reviewing for possible reinstatement, 80 of the exclusions also appeared on the COVID-19 extension docket, as they were also identified as products needed to combat COVID-19 (85 FR 85831).  The review for the possible extension of COVID exclusions and the review for the possible reinstatement of exclusions are based on different factors and may result in different effective dates.  Accordingly, interested persons that commented on a product pursuant to the notice on extending exclusions for COVID-related products may also wish to submit comments for the product pursuant to the notice on possible reinstatement of China Section 301 exclusions.

For assistance or questions with China Section 301 Exclusions Process, please contact the Section 301 Hotline at (202) 395-5725.
