TRQ for Wheat Products Filled on October 13

: General

2017-2018 Tariff Rate Quota For Wheat Products Will Be Suspended Friday October 13, 2017 2017-10-12

Please be advised that the 2017-2018 wheat products tariff rate quota (TRQ) will be filled on October 13, 2017. Consequently, October 13, 2017 (at 11:59 pm local time) will be the cut-off date for accounting for imports of all wheat products classified under a “within access commitment" tariff item number.  


All imports of wheat products accounted for after the cut-off date and time will be classified at the “over access commitment” tariff item number, even if they were imported, (or imported and released), before the quota has been filled. Therefore, importations of subject wheat products that are released on or before October 13 should be accounted on October 13 before 11:59pm, otherwise higher “over-access commitment” duty rates will apply.


Please note that after the TRQ level is reached, wheat products that qualify under the U.S., Mexican, Chilean, Peruvian, or Costa Rican tariff will continue to be assessed at the within access lower rate of duty.


The TRQ for wheat products is suspended until July 31, 2018. The wheat products TRQ for marketing year 2018-2019 will be renewed on August 1, 2018.
