This note and subheadings 9823.52.01 through 9823.52.08, inclusive, apply to certain textile and apparel goods of Canada that are not originating goods under the terms of general note 11 to the tariff schedule, however, that are eligible for special tariff treatment as provided for herein, USMCA claims involving non-originating textiles and apparel goods subject to TPL provisions must be accompanied by a valid certificate (or its electronic equivalent) of eligibility. For purposes of obtaining preferential tariff treatment, this document must be completed legibly and in full by the exporter and be in the possession of the importer at the time the declaration is made.

Certificate numbering

The first number of the certificate must match the year of presentation. For example, a 2021 certificate, e.g.1 CA (XX) 123456, must accompany merchandise entered in 2021. The certificate must be reflected in column 34 on the CBP 7501. ABI filers can transmit the certificates of eligibility in the certificate field of the line information.

A 2020 certificate of eligibility CANNOT be used for merchandise presented in 2021.  Likewise, a 2021 certificate cannot be used on entries presented in 2020.  Merchandise presented in 2021 will require a 2021 certificate of eligibility and will be charged to the 2021 quota limits. Therefore, 2020 entry summaries for merchandise released on or after December 17, 2020, must be presented by December 31, 2020. If presented after December 31, 2020, liquidated damages will be assessed for late filing.

Post-Importation Claims

Post-importation claims for TPL must be filed with the certificate of eligibility for the year the entry summary, or equivalent documentation, is accepted by CBP.  Post-importation claims will not be granted if the quantitative restraints for the subject TPL are already filled.
