Exclusion Request Product Information

For this single Exclusion Request, provide a full, complete description of the product in the space provided below.See explanation below.
The product for which an Exclusion is being requested is defined as follows:



*With regard to the product for which an Exclusion is requested, such a description must be limited to a single product. The description must be limited solely to physical properties (e.g., chemical requirements, mechanical requirements, dimensions, etc.) and exact descriptive terms/phrases covering the product subject to the Exclusion Request (e.g., “hot-rolled,” “seamless pipe,” “suitable for use in boilers,” “longitudinally submerged arc welded,” etc.).

All such physical properties must be defined based on actual, rather than nominal, measurements; references to specific dimensions (e.g., “cross-sectional diameter of 5.50 mm”) or measurements (e.g., “yield strength of 300 MPa,” “carbon content 0.08%,” etc.) will be interpreted as meaning the exact dimension or measurement. Ranges (e.g., “cross-sectional diameter falling within the range 5.35 mm and 5.65 mm,” “yield strength greater than or equal to 300 MPa,” “carbon content less than or equal to 0.15%, by weight,” etc.) are allowed. Where a range is needed, it should be identified based on the end points of the range (as in the examples above), rather than through references to absolute or percentage tolerances.

Provide the following information on the single product that is the subject of this Exclusion Request: 1) dimensional information for the single product and a single size -- not a range of products and or sizes (e.g., 19 mm dia. rebar - not 19, 22, 25, and 29 mm.).
A separate Exclusion Request must be submitted for each product by physical dimension; 2) performance data for tensile strength, yield strength, hardness, impact, shear and test temperature.

Certification

Instruction: This Exclusion Request must be signed by an organization official specifically authorized to certify the document as being accurate and complete. The undersigned certifies that the information herein supplied in response to this questionnaire is complete and correct to the best of his/her knowledge.

Effective for all exclusion requests submitted on or after December 14, 2020, the undersigned certifies in the 232 Exclusions Portal that the information herein supplied in response to this questionnaire is complete and correct to the best of his/her knowledge. By signing the certification below, I attest that:

  1. My organization intends to manufacture, process, or otherwise transform the imported product for which I have filed an exclusion request or I have a purchase order or orders for such products;
  2. My organization does not intend to use the exclusion for which I have filed an exclusion request, if granted, solely to hedge or arbitrage the price;
  3. My organization expects to consume, sell, or otherwise use the total volume of product across all my active exclusions and pending exclusion requests in the course of my organization’s business activities within the next calendar year;
  4. If my organization is submitting an exclusion request for a product for which we previously received an exclusion, I certify that my organization either imported the full amount of our approved exclusion(s) last year or intended to import the full amount but could not due to one of the following reasons:
    1. loss of contract(s);
    2. unanticipated business downturns; or
    3. other factors that were beyond my organizations’ control that directly resulted in less need for steel or aluminum articles; and
  5. I certify that the exclusion amount requested this year is in line with what my organization expects to import based on our current business outlook. If requested by the Department of Commerce, my organization shall provide documentation that justifies its assertions in this certification regarding its past imports of steel or aluminum articles and its projections for the current year, as it relates to past and current calendar year exclusion requests.

It is a criminal offense to willfully make a false statement or representation to any department or agency of the United States Government as to any matter within its jurisdiction.[18 U.S.C. 1001 (1984 & SUPP. 1197)]
