Current Status: Open
Closes on July 30, 2021
In keeping with Global Affairs Canada’s policy, the Government of Canada is seeking input from Canadians on the administration of the Tariff Rate Quota (TRQ) for peanut butter exports to the United States under the WTO. Only peanut butter that is manufactured in Canada and shipped with an export permit may enter the United States under Canada’s country-specific reserve within the US import TRQ. Peanut butter is defined as a good classified under tariff item No. 2008.11.10 in the List of Tariff Provisions set out in the Schedule to the Customs Tariff. The applicable US tariff item number for peanut butter is 2008.11.05 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).
