By SSN Staff SILVER SPRING, Md.—The Secu- rity Industry Association recently provided an update and info on the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR)'s announcement of a pro- cess to obtain product exclusions from Section 301 tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods imported to the United States. In effect as of Friday, July 6, an additional 25 percent tariff applies to 56 tariff subheadings identified by SIA as impacting security-related prod- ucts. USTR is now considering exclusion requests "to address situations that warrant exclud- ing a particular product within a subheading, but not the tariff subheading as a whole." Since exclusions will be made on a product and not a company basis, exclusions will apply to all imports of the product regardless of whether the importer filed a request. The exclusion process has the following important dates and features: • The public will have 90 days to file a request for a product exclusion; the request period will end on Tuesday, Oct. 9. • Following public posting of the filed request on regulations. gov, the public will have 14 days to file responses to the request for product exclusion.
