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 number must be electronically transmitted in ACE and the original certificate may be uploaded via the Document Imaging System (DIS) upon request.
