Report in kilograms (kg)
An original certificate of quota eligibility (CQE) is required for raw cane sugar entry(s) with country specific allocations for the in-quota duty rate. The CQE must be transmitted electronically via the Automated Broker Interface (ABI). If the CQE has not been transmitted in ABI; the entry summary should be returned to the filer for corrective action.
In addition, CQE number annotations in the quota module’s remarks field or via the NOTE function in ACS are no longer needed.
Any country without a quantity allocation, which is not subject to a United States embargo, may export raw cane sugar, provided it is entered at the over-quota duty rate. These countries are not required to furnish a CQE.
Note: The quantity to be charged for quota purposes is based on a 98.5-degree polarity. This is to ensure that the individual country quotas do not overfill when the final raw value becomes available. HQ Quota Branch will make the conversion.
