Report in kilograms (kg)
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; import specialists are responsible for this verification.
In addition, if a CQE is presented, please a notate the CQE number in the "Remarks" field when processing quota in ACS. This will expedite quota release. If the remarks are not noted in the quota module, it is acceptable to add a remark using the NOTE function in ACS.
Any country without a quantity allocation, which is not subject to a United States embargo, may export raw cane sugar, provided it is entered at the over-quota duty rate. These countries are not required to furnish a CQE.
Note: The quantity to be charged for quota purposes is based on a 98.5-degree polarity. This is to ensure that the individual country quotas do not overfill when the final raw value becomes available. HQ Quota Branch will make the conversion.
