On May 13, 2019, the Government of China announced its pilot program for excluding certain products from additional duties currently imposed on certain goods of U.S. origin.

Applicants should detail specific reasons for exclusion and include information such as:

  • Challenges of alternative sourcing outside of U.S.;
  • Potential economic impact of additional duties to the applicant;
  • Potential negative impact to industry development, technological progress, employment, or environmental impact.

The exclusion list will be published after evaluation by the China Tariff Commission based on applications from stakeholders.
