The Tariff Commission of China State Council has launched a Pilot Program for Excluding Certain Eligible Products from Tariff Hikes against the United States on May 13, 2019. Based on applications filed by interested parties, certain eligible products can be excluded from the scope of tariff hikes against the United States, to which exclusion measures such as suspending tariff hikes, and returning the tariff collected for those qualified for tariff refund. The application for the products for exclusion was accepted from June 3, 2019. Since this is the first time that China has launched such a program, the regulation is not fully transparent at this time.
