US duties on Chinese products - Possible exemption request for foreign companies

With reference to the 25% duties applied by the US Administration, starting from the 9 May 2019, on some assets of Chinese origin (already affected by the 24 September 2018 by an extra-duty of 10%), we inform that foreign companies that export to the USA goods subject to such charges (attached list) may submit online, on the site of the US Trade Representative (, the request to obtain exclusion from the application of duties.
The request - which must be submitted electronically within and no later than 30 September 2019 - must be duly justified and, among the precise conditions provided, include the exclusive availability in China of the goods for which the exclusion from duties is requested, the possible financial loss for the applicant or, more generally, for US interests etc.
Below is the link to the notice of the Federal Register of 24 last June which provides all the details for the presentation of the exemption request, including the forms.
