The U.S. Department of Commerce rolled out an online portal to submit and monitor product-specific exclusion requests to the Section 232 tariffs.

The "232 Exclusion Portal" will allow individuals and companies to submit exclusion requests, objections to exclusion requests, rebuttals, and surrebuttals and will replace the use of the federal rulemaking portal at www.regulations.gov, Commerce said. The new portal is aimed at streamlining the exclusion process while enhancing data integrity and quality controls, it added.
