According to OMA Connections Partner Dinsmore, businesses have until Sept. 30 to file a request to be exempted from the 25% tariffs (List 3) recently placed on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods on May 10, 2019. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has posted instructions on how to request an exclusion of certain products covered by the Trump administration’s third — and latest — round of tariffs. Interested parties can make their exclusion requests online beginning noon Sunday, June 30. See Dinsmore’s update for more on this and other tariff-related issues. 6/26/2019
