China Section 301 Exclusions Related to Covid-19 Extended through September

In prior notices, the U.S. Trade Representative modified the action in the Section 301 investigation of China’s acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation by excluding from additional duties certain medical-care products needed to address the COVID-19 pandemic. To support efforts to combat COVID-19, on December 29, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative announced the extension of certain product exclusions on medical-care and/or COVID response products and further modifications to remove Section 301 duties from additional medical-care and/or COVID response products. A notice on March 5, 2021, announced the U.S. Trade Representative’s determination to extend those exclusions. The extensions announced in this notice will extend the product exclusions through September 30, 2021. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation.
