The Department of Agriculture is making the following changes to the fiscal year 2020 raw cane sugar tariff-rate quota after determining that additional supplies are required in the U.S. market.
- increasing the quantity of raw cane sugar eligible to enter at the lower duty rate under this TRQ by 90,718 metric tons raw value, bringing the overall FY 2020 raw sugar TRQ to 1,525,428 MTRV
- permitting all sugar entering the U.S. under this TRQ to enter through Oct. 31, 2020, a month later than the usual last entry date
Raw cane sugar entering under this TRQ must be accompanied by a certificate for quota eligibility. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative will allocate the increase among supplying countries and customs areas.
