The international trade attorney will develop and support the narrative arguments required to support the exclusion request. The USTR asks that these narrative arguments be responsive to st criteria that tie to the purpose of the section 301 tariffs. Our analysis of USTR the approvals and denials previously issued, has revealed that the USTR favors certain arguments and criteria, over others. The attorney will also assist in the formulation of the proposed language of the tariff exclusion (this language is required in the application, if approved this language then appears as a statutory amendment to the tariff schedule). This language must be carefully drafted to accord with certain objective standards. Customs officials vet this language and are to object to any poorly or improperly drafted exclusions which might not be "administrable" by field and port personnel. Trade and financial data will also be required in the application relative to prior sales over a three year period (2016, 2017, 2018). The attorney will help the importer to organize, present, and support all of this information, data and arguments in the best light possible.
