U.S. conforming amendments to previously reinstated exclusions
The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) today released for publication in the Federal Register a notice [PDF 212 KB] making conforming amendments to two previously reinstated exclusions associated with the Section 301 investigation of China’s acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation.
The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) implemented certain changes to 10-digit statistical reporting categories of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), effective July 1, 2023. To maintain the pre-existing product coverage of the China 301 actions, conforming amendments to the corresponding note provisions in the HTSUS are required.
The annex to today’s notice conforms two existing product exclusions with the July 1, 2023 changes to the statistical reporting categories in the HTSUS. Read TradeNewsFlash
