Barley products tariff rate quota will be filled on December 21
Global Affairs Canada advises that the 2020-2021 Barley Products Tariff Rate Quota will be filled as of 11:59 pm local time on December 21, 2020.
The within access commitment tariff items will be closed and the “over access commitment” rates of duty will then be applicable until July 31, 2021.
Under TRQs, imports are subject to low “within access commitment” rates of duty up to a predetermined limit (i.e. until the import access level has been reached), while imports over that limit are subject to significantly higher “over access commitment” rates of duty.
It should be noted that some barley products that qualify under the U.S., Mexican, Chilean, Peruvian, Costa Rican or European tariffs will continue to be assessed at the “within access” lower rate of duty.
