The Section 301 tariff exclusions on U.S. imports from China are set to expire on December 31, 2023. Importers may face new tariffs on the affected goods starting January 1, 2024.
In October 2021, more than 300 goods, including 77 medical care products, were excluded from tariffs under the Section 301 tariff exclusion, with the aim to facilitate urgent care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The complete list of relevant goods is available here, affecting all products meeting the specified HTSUS numbers and product descriptions, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request.
The exclusion review is part of an ongoing general tariff review on imports from China, which may result in the removal of some existing tariffs or the addition of new ones. The review is planned to be completed by the end of 2023, and any reimposed tariffs from the abovementioned exclusion will be added to the existing ones.
