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.

 

Questions from the importing community regarding this electronic message should refer questions through email to HQ QUOTA@cbp.dhs.gov.
