Message to Industry: Barley Products Tariff Rate Quota (TRQ) - Extension period ended

This message pertains to imports of barley products classified under Customs Tariff headings: 11.02, 11.03, 11.04, 11.07, 11.08, 19.01, 19.04 and 23.02.

Further to our message dated 2021-11-23, by which the close date initially announced for 2021-11-22 was extended by means of exceptional shipment-specific permits for the reason explained therein, the purpose of this message is to inform you that the 2021-2022 Barley Products Tariff Rate Quota will be filled as of 11:59 pm local time on 2022-01-06. Applications for shipment-specific permits, other than those under a supplemental authorization, will no longer be accepted after that time. 

All imports of barley products accounted for after the cut-off date and not accompanied by a shipment-specific permit will be classified at the “over access commitment” tariff item number.

General Import Permit No. 100 – Eligible Agricultural Goods (GIP No. 100) will cover, for the balance of the 2021-2022 marketing year, unlimited imports classified under the "over access commitment" tariff item number. 

Please note that, certain barley products, such as those that qualify under the U.S., Mexican, Chilean, Peruvian, Costa Rican, European or United Kingdom’s tariffs, will continue to be assessed at the “within access” lower rate of duty. Questions regarding the tariff classification of a product should be addressed to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). 

A Notice to Importers explaining the rules and procedures governing the administration of the TRQs for wheat, barley and their products is available on our web site:
