This notice includes 8 complete Harmonized Tariff Number subheadings as follows:
If you import any item that falls under these subheadings, you will be allowed to claim exclusion using HTS# 9903.88.39.
Retroactive refunds of the Section 301 tariffs will not be automatic. Importers must submit a post-summary correction (PSC) for eligible entries made subsequent to September 1, 2019. If entries have already liquidated, importers may follow liquidation protest rules.
