Relief from the Quantitative Limitation Applicable to Certain Steel Articles for Brazil


On August 28, 2020, President Donald Trump issued Presidential Proclamation 10064 adjusting the quantitative limitations set forth in Presidential Proclamation 9759 applicable to certain steel articles imported from Brazil. The Proclamation authorized the Secretary of Commerce to provide relief from the quantitative limitation set forth in this proclamation in certain limited circumstances on an expedited basis in addition to the relief from the quantitative limitations that the Secretary is already authorized to provide pursuant to Clause 1 of Proclamation 9777.

Proclamation 10064 more specifically offered an expedited pathway to relief from the quantitative limitation applicable to subheading 9903.80.57 of subchapter III of chapter 99 of the HTSUS for Brazil for imports of such steel articles that met certain criteria.
