NMMA is notifying members of an opportunity to request relief from the first tranche of Section 301 tariffs on $34 billion in goods imported from China.
Back in July, the U.S. government began imposing a 25 percent tariff on select Chinese products – including propellers, hydro jet engines, combustion engines, fuel injection pumps, manufacturing machinery, antenna receivers, display monitors, and navigational instruments.
A full list of affected products is available here. [Note: This is not the $200 billion list the administration released earlier this week (Monday, September 17, 2018).]
The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has developed a system for requesting an exclusion, and NMMA is encouraging all affected members to file a submission. Click here to access the official Section 301 tariff exclusion form.
The deadline for filing an exclusion request is Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018.
In addition, NMMA has developed a guide on the USTR’s submission procedures, which is available here.
