Safeguard

In a Federal Register notice published on October 5, 2015, the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture gave notice that it was invoking the special agricultural safeguard duty on imports of butter and fresh or sour cream containing over 45 percent by weight of butterfat. The FAS administrator did so on the basis of a determination that the yearly special safeguard trigger level has been met. This additional duty will be applicable to butter and fresh or sour cream imported under HTS subheadings 0401.50.75, 0403.90.78, and 0405.10.20 effective October 5, 2015 through December 31, 2015.
