The following notice was published in the Federal Register today

Notice of Product Exclusions: China’s Acts, Policies, and Practices Related to Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property, and Innovation

AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.

ACTION: Notice of product exclusions.

SUMMARY: Effective July 6, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative (Trade
Representative) imposed additional duties on goods of China with an annual trade value
of approximately $34 billion (the $34 billion action) as part of the action in the Section
301 investigation of China’s acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer,
intellectual property, and innovation. The Trade Representative’s determination included
a decision to establish a product exclusion process. The Trade Representative initiated the
exclusion process in July 2018, and stakeholders have submitted requests for the
exclusion of specific products. In December 2018, March 2019, April 2019, May 2019,
and June 2019, the Trade Representative granted exclusion requests. This notice
announces the Trade Representative’s determination to grant additional exclusion
requests, as specified in the Annex to this notice. The Trade Representative will continue
to issue decisions on pending requests on a periodic basis.
DATES: The product exclusions announced in this notice will apply as of the July 6,
2018 effective date of the $34 billion action, and will extend for one year after the
publication of this notice. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on
entry guidance and implementation.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general questions about this
notice, contact Assistant General Counsels Philip Butler or Megan Grimball, or Director
of Industrial Goods Justin Hoffmann at (202) 395-5725. For specific questions on
customs classification or implementation of the product exclusions identified in the
Annex to this notice, contact traderemedy@cbp.dhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
A. Background
For background on the proceedings in this investigation, please see the prior
notices issued in the investigation, including 82 FR 40213 (August 23, 2017), 83 FR
14906 (April 6, 2018), 83 FR 28710 (June 20, 2018), 83 FR 33608 (July 17, 2018), 83
FR 38760 (August 7, 2018), 83 FR 40823 (August 16, 2018), 83 FR 47974 (September
21, 2018), 83 FR 65198 (December 19, 2018), 83 FR 67463 (December 28, 2018), 84 FR
7966 (March 5, 2019), 84 FR 11152 (March 25, 2019), 84 FR 16310 (April 18, 2019), 84
FR 21389 (May 14, 2019), and 84 FR 25895 (June 4, 2019).
Effective July 6, 2018, the Trade Representative imposed additional 25 percent
duties on goods of China classified in 818 8-digit subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of $34
billion. See 83 FR 28710. The Trade Representative’s determination included a decision
to establish a process by which U.S. stakeholders may request exclusion of particular
products classified within an 8-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $34 billion
action from the additional duties. The Trade Representative issued a notice setting out the
process for the product exclusions, and opened a public docket. See 83 FR 32181 (the
July 11 notice).

Under the July 11 notice, requests for exclusion had to identify the product
subject to the request in terms of the physical characteristics that distinguish the product
from other products within the relevant 8-digit subheading covered by the $34 billion
action. Requestors also had to provide the 10-digit subheading of the HTSUS most
applicable to the particular product requested for exclusion, and could submit information
on the ability of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to administer the requested
exclusion. Requestors were asked to provide the quantity and value of the Chinese-origin
product that the requestor purchased in the last three years. With regard to the rationale
for the requested exclusion, requests had to address the following factors:
 Whether the particular product is available only from China and specifically whether
the particular product and/or a comparable product is available from sources in the
United States and/or third countries.
 Whether the imposition of additional duties on the particular product would cause
severe economic harm to the requestor or other U.S. interests.
 Whether the particular product is strategically important or related to “Made in China
2025” or other Chinese industrial programs.
The July 11 notice stated that the Trade Representative would take into account whether
an exclusion would undermine the objective of the Section 301 investigation.
The July 11 notice required submission of requests for exclusion from the $34
billion action no later than October 9, 2018, and noted that the Trade Representative
would periodically announce decisions. In December 2018, the Trade Representative
granted an initial set of exclusion requests. See 83 FR 67463. The Trade Representative
granted a second, third, fourth and fifth set of exclusions in March 2019, April 2019, May
2019, and June 2019. See 84 FR 11152, 84 FR 16310, 84 FR 21389, and 84 FR 25895.
The Office of the United States Trade Representative regularly updates the status of each
pending request and posts the status within the webpages for the respective tariff action
they apply to at https://ustr.gov/issue-areas/enforcement/section-301-investigations/tariffactions.

B. Determination to Grant Certain Exclusions
Based on the evaluation of the factors set out in the July 11 notice, which are
summarized above, pursuant to sections 301(b), 301(c), and 307(a) of the Trade Act of
1974, as amended, and in accordance with the advice of the interagency Section 301
Committee, the Trade Representative has determined to grant the product exclusions set
out in the Annex to this notice. The Trade Representative’s determination also takes into
account advice from advisory committees and any public comments on the pertinent
exclusion requests.
As set out in the Annex to this notice, the exclusions are reflected in 110 specially
prepared product descriptions, which cover 362 separate exclusion requests.
In accordance with the July 11 notice, the exclusions are available for any product
that meets the description in the Annex, regardless of whether the importer filed an
exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the
product descriptions in the Annex to this notice, and not by the product descriptions set
out in any particular request for exclusion.
Paragraph A, subparagraphs (3) – (5) are conforming amendments to the HTSUS
reflecting the modification made by the Annex to this notice.

Paragraph B of the Annex to this notice modifies U.S. note 20(k)(26) to
subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, as
set out in the Annex of the notice published at 84 FR 21389 (May 14, 2019).
In order to clarify the periodic revisions to the HTSUS, paragraph C of the Annex
modifies the text to U.S. note 20(m)(27) to subchapter III of chapter 99 of the
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, as set out in the Annex of the notice
published at 84 FR 25895 (June 4, 2019).
Paragraphs D and E of the Annex to this notice correct a typographical error in
U.S. notes 20(m)(53) and 20(m)(54) to subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized
Tariff Schedule of the United States, as set out in the Annex of the notice published at 84
FR 25895 (June 4, 2019).
As stated in the July 11 notice, the exclusions will apply as of the July 6, 2018
effective date of the $34 billion action, and extend for one year after the publication of
this notice. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance
and implementation.
The Trade Representative will continue to issue determinations on pending
requests on a periodic basis.
