On June 23, 2020, in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #43134617, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued guidance on the fifth round of product exclusions for List 4A of the Section 301 trade remedies. These exclusions were announced in Federal Register Notice (FRN) 85 FR 35975.

According to the CSMS, importers may request administrative refunds on shipments filed on or after September 1, 2019. Refunds can be requested via a post summary correction (PSC) if the shipment is within the PSC filing timeframe, or via protest for entries that are beyond the PSC filing timeframe. These exclusions will be available through September 1, 2020 under 9903.88.49.

CBP directs the trade with additional questions on Section 301 entry filing requirements to the resources listed in CSMS #42203908.
