Importers of applicable products can request exclusions for any product that meets the description in the exclusion, whether or not they requested the exclusion. Additionally, importers, manufacturers and other parties that have been affected by these tariffs are encouraged to submit comments here on the tariff headings containing these exclusions through the USTR portal in the four-year review, which closes January 17, 2023.
