On September 1, 2020, in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #43828656, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued guidance on the Section 301 List 3 product exclusions and amendments originally announced in Federal Register Notice (FRN) 85 FR 52188.

Two product description based exclusions were added. They can be claimed under 9903.88.48.

  • “Wallets, whether or not with wrist straps, of reinforced plastics, each measuring at least 17.5 cm long by 2 cm wide by 11 cm high and not more than 19 cm long by 2 cm wide by 11 cm high (described in statistical reporting number 4202.32.1000)”
