All raw cane sugar, HTS numbers 1701.13.1000 or 1701.14.1000, must be sampled in accordance with Customs Directive 3820-001B, dated May 01, 2007.

Report in kilograms (kg)

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:

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) and provide via the Document Imaging System (DIS) upon request. 

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 98.8-degree polarity with a conversion factor of 1.04909.  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.
