The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) submitted its final recommendations for duty relief via the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) earlier this month. Congress is expected to pass the MTB relief recommendations submitted by USTR and send them to the President for his signature by the end of the year to avoid any disruption in MTB relief. The new MTB will provide duty relief on eligible products from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2023
SFIA initiated its MTB effort in 2019 and had a 97 percent success rate on its duty relief petitions.
