Requestors also had to provide the 10digit HTSUS subheading 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.
