To facilitate accurate reporting and segregation of the 2021 and 2022 Raw Sugar TRQs, a unique 9903 Harmonized Tariff Schedule Number (HTS) is combined with the current raw sugar HTS numbers for the 2021 period only.  Please report as indicated below. 

The above HTS combinations are only applicable from November 1, 2021 until December 31, 2021.  USDA has extended the 2021 Certificate of Quota Eligibility (CQE) validity until December 31, 2021. CQE numbers must be electronically transmitted into ACE and uploaded via Document Imaging System (DIS) upon request.

The Trade may transmit the quota entry summaries for the 2021 extension update using the countries’ existing raw sugar balance in ACE on November 1, 2021, at 08:30 am until December 31, 2021, at 4:30 pm, Eastern Standard Time.  Please report transmission problems to the ACE Client Representative and Quota and Agricultural Branch (QAB).

To address the certificate transmission issue for the 2021 Raw Sugar Extension, please replace the second character (1) on your current certificate with a (2) and classify with the proper tariffs as indicated in Quota Bulletin 21-302

At the end of the 2021 Raw Sugar TRQ Extended Period (12/31/2021), the records will be closed and the processing for the 2022 Raw Sugar TRQ (single HTS) will continue.

Please ensure that the warehouse entry summaries associated with the warehouse withdrawals are not finalized and the collections for the warehouse withdrawals are only submitted as collection code 002.  A collection code 092 with a zero amount may be processed once the final warehouse ledger is submitted to close out the warehouse entry summary.

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.  Non-ABI entry summary must be updated in ACE prior to processing collections.
