On August 2, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued guidance in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #39169565 on the seventh round of product exclusions for the Section 301 trade remedies. This round of product exclusions contains products affected by the List 2 action on products of Chinese origin worth an approximate $16 billion in annual trade value.
According to the CSMS, importers may request administrative refunds on shipments filed on or after August 23, 2018. Refunds can be requested via a post summary correction on unliquidated entry summaries, or via protest for entries that have already liquidated. In addition, CBP reminds importers to refer to CSMS #18-000657 when filing entries with multiple Chapter 99 headings or subheadings.
CBP directs additional questions on Section 301 entry filing requirements to TradeRemedy@cbp.dhs.gov.
