The U.S. Trade Representative has announced a 14-day extension for all current product exclusions from additional duties under the Section 301 investigation of China, moving their expiration date from May 31, 2024, to June 14, 2024. Additionally, certain exclusions are extended through May 31, 2025, as detailed in Annex C, to support efforts to shift sourcing out of China or to account for limited availability outside China. Exclusions not further extended are listed in Annex D, primarily because public comments did not demonstrate a need or benefit for continued exclusion. These decisions consider public comments, confidential import data, and advisory committee advice. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will provide further implementation guidance.
