TOP QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS RELATED TO STEEL AND ALUMINUM TARIFF EXCLUSIONS –
Following President Trump’s signature on the steel (25%) and aluminum (10%) import tariffs, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) published interim rules for requesting and granting exclusions from tariffs under the new Section 232.
The DOC is authorized to grant exclusions from tariffs if the steel or aluminum products are determined not to be produced in the United States in a sufficient quantity and reasonably available amount or of satisfactory quality, or based upon specific national security considerations. To be successful, applications will need to provide sufficient supporting information covering these factors.
