For purposes of administering tariff rate quotas containing minimum access quantities, imports will be applied to the minimum access quantity for a specific country. Once the minimum access has been reached, subsequent imports will be applied to the Other Countries/Areas allocation if available.

Please refer to Chapter 99, Subchapter IV, U.S. Note 1 for the list of countries that are not subject to additional agricultural safeguard duties under heading 9904. Imports from these countries should be presented as a type 02 entry using the high rate (over-quota) tariff number provided for in Chapter 18 without the Chapter 99 HTS number. These entries must still be reported through the ACS quota module.
