US Department of Commerce Seeks Input on Section 232 (Steel and Aluminum) Exclusion Process
On May 26, 2020, the US Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced that it would accept comments from the public on the Section 232 exclusion process, including regarding factors considered by agency officials when rendering decisions on exclusion petitions, the efficiency and transparency of the current process, and potential revisions to the current process. This comment window will provide members of the public with a direct opportunity to engage with agency officials on the exclusion process set up to support members of the public seeking relief from tariffs and quotas on covered steel and aluminum imports.
Companies involved in the global steel or aluminum supply chains should prepare to respond to BIS’ request for comments and provide feedback on these and other proposals to aid in the agency’s inquiry. Comments must be submitted no later than July 10, 2020.
