WQA Offers Gold Seal Clients Help Navigating Tariffs Exclusion Process
WQA has resources and important information for members to better understand the impact of tariffs on Chinese goods imported to the United States. The issue is somewhat complex because three different lists of impacted products are at three different stages of the process. WQA’s Government Affairs staff has provided links to all three lists and other helpful information on a special stakeholder web page .
Items on List One were subjected to the tariffs as of July 6, but companies can apply for exclusions that would be applied retroactively. A link to the forms and details on the exclusion application process are available on the web page. Companies must submit their exclusions request by Oct. 9, 2018.
Items on Lists Two and Three are going through a public hearing process; written comments on List Two must be submitted by July 23. Items on List Three were just announced July 10; a deadline for written comments on List Three has not been set.
