Import tariff quota

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced on May 1, 2013 that it is waiving certain provisions in the Refined Sugar Re-Export Program. Under the program, refiners may enter raw sugar unrestricted by the quantitative limit established for the raw sugar tariff-rate quota or the requirements of certificates of quota eligibility, as long as licensees export an equivalent quantity of refined sugar either as refined sugar or as an ingredient in sugar-containing products or use the refined sugar in the production of polyhydric alcohols. This waiver will expire on December 31, 2014. Beginning on January 1, 2015, the credit limit will again be 50,000 metric tons raw value. No change is being made to the 50,000 metric ton raw value limit for debits.
