The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced a new round of exclusions for products on List 3. This list covers nearly $200 billion in Chinese goods. This round of exclusions has the largest number of product exclusions announced by USTR to date.
RV-specific items on this list include:
- Ladder hooks and supports of polyethylene-coated steel suitable for carrying RV waste tanks, each weighing not more than 2 kilograms (described in statistical reporting number 8302.30.3060).
- Aluminim RV screen door push bars, each adjustable in length from not less than 500 mm to not more than 825 mm, weighing not more than 600 grams (described in statistical reporting number 8302.30.3060)
- Awning roller bar hanging mountings of polyvinyl chloride for RVs, each with S-hook hangers having a capacity of not more than 7 kilograms, weighing not more than 200 grams (described in statistical reporting number 8302.41.9080)
This list covers a wide array of products, including bath and shower faucets, toilet paper holders, upholstered seats and seat components, solar battery chargers and more. RVIA members are encouraged to review or have their importers review the list.
Exclusions for these List 3 goods apply retroactively for goods entered for consumption or withdrawn from warehouse on or after Sept. 24, 2018. The exclusions remain in effect until Aug. 7, 2020.
Product exclusions are not importer-specific. They apply to any importer of the excluded merchandise. The scope of exclusions is governed by the language of the product descriptions provided by USTR in its list, not by product descriptions shown in any exclusion request or HTS classification.
To receive a product exclusion, companies must file a post-summary correction or protest of liquidation with the U.S. Customers and Border Protection for a refund. This will apply to products that entered U.S. customs territory on or after Sept. 24, 2018.
