On December 2, 2021, in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #50264295, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued “guidance on requests for liquidation extensions and protest processing related to pending litigation in the Court of International Trade (CIT) challenging the lawfulness of the Section 301 List 3 and/or 4A duties on Chinese goods in In Re Section 301 Cases, Court No. 21-00052.”

According to the guidance, CBP will deny liquidation extension requests submitted solely based on the pending CIT liquidation. Protests will be placed in suspended status as CBP will not be acting on them at this time. The guidance only pertains to protests “contesting the validity of List 3 and/or List 4A Section 301 duties on Chinese goods.”
