Agricultural products described in Chapter 98, Subchapter XXII, U.S. Note 24, U.S. Note 25; and Chapter 99, Subchapter XV, U.S. Notes 4 through 14, of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS)
The DR-CAFTA contains quantitative restraints associated with a reduced duty rate for agricultural products that meet the requirements for a "qualifying good." A qualifying good is one that meets the product specific rule of origin; however, U.S. materials or inputs are considered to be of a non-Party, i.e., U.S. materials are considered non-originating. The tariff rate quotas (TRQs) cover products such as sugar, sugar-containing products, beef, cheese, milk powder, butter, other dairy products, ice cream, milk, cream, and sour cream.
