Section 301 China Tariff Exclusions

Starting Jan. 1, hundreds of the Section 301 China tariff exclusions will expire, requiring importers through their customs brokers to pay the 25% or 7.5% trade remedy tariff, as appropriate, to cover merchandise of China origin. CBP will assess the trade remedy tariffs, in addition to any applicable normal trade relations (column 1) duty rates. Although advocacy efforts persist, at this time our National Brokers Association has no clear indication that Congress and the incoming administration will extend these exclusions next year and do so retroactively as a part of a more comprehensive plan to have Congress and the White House to revisit the Section 301 exclusion process altogether.
