The Road to Tariff Exemptions is Paved with Red Tape

On March 1, 2018, The White House announced sweeping tariffs on steel (25%) and aluminum (10%) imported into the United States (read related blog entry HERE). Shortly thereafter, the Administration outlined a tariff exemption process whereby the Department of Commerce would receive, review and process requests within 90 days. According to one source, now four months into the program, just 700 of the 27,000 requests have been fully reviewed with only 266 requests granted.
