See 83 FR 47974, as modified by 83 FR 49153. In May 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative increased the additional duty to 25 percent. See 84 FR 20459. On June 24, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative established a process by which stakeholders could request exclusion of particular products classified within an eight-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 billion action from the additional duties. See 84 FR 29576 (the June 24 notice). Under the June 24 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 eight-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 billion action. Requestors also had to provide the ten-digit 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.

38000 (June 24, 2020), and 85 FR 42968 (July 15, 2020).
    Effective September 24, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative imposed 
additional 10 percent ad valorem duties on goods of China classified in 
5,757 full and partial subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of 
$200 billion. See 83 FR 47974, as modified by 83 FR 49153. In May 2019, 
the U.S. Trade Representative increased the additional duty to 25 
percent. See 84 FR 20459. On June 24, 2019, the U.S. Trade 
Representative established a process by which stakeholders could 
request exclusion of particular products classified within an eight-
digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 billion action from the 
additional duties. See 84 FR 29576 (the June 24 notice).
    Under the June 24 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 eight-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 billion 
action. Requestors also had to provide the ten-digit 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.

[[Page 52189]]

     Whether the particular product is strategically important 
or related to ``Made in China 2025'' or other Chinese industrial 
programs.
    The June 24 notice stated that the U.S. Trade Representative would 
take into account whether an exclusion would undermine the objective of 
the Section 301 investigation.
    The June 24 notice required submission of requests for exclusion 
from the $200 billion action no later than September 30, 2019, and 
noted that the U.S. Trade Representative periodically would announce 
decisions. In August 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative granted an 
initial set of exclusion requests. See 84 FR 38717. The U.S. Trade 
Representative granted additional exclusions in September, October, 
November and December 2019, and January, February, March, April, May, 
June and July 2020. See 84 FR 49591; 84 FR 57803; 84 FR 61674; 84 FR

advice of the interagency Section 301 Committee, the U.S. Trade 
Representative has determined to grant the product exclusions in the 
Annex to this notice. The U.S. Trade Representative's determination 
also takes into account advice from advisory committees and any public 
comments on the pertinent exclusion requests. As set forth in the 
Annex, the exclusions are reflected in two specially prepared product 
descriptions that respond to two exclusion requests. In accordance with 
the June 24 notice, the exclusions are available for any products that 
meet the description in the Annex, regardless of whether the importer

found in any particular request for exclusion.
