Message to Industry – CUSMA-Sugar-Containing Products Tariff Rate Quota fill rate discrepancy – Additional update

In relation to the filling and closure of the CUSMA-Sugar-Containing Products (SCP) Tariff Rate Quota (TRQ) in the United States on November 2, 2022, Global Affairs Canada confirms that this TRQ will remain closed for the remainder of the quota year, ending on December 31, 2022.

Please note that any unused portions of CUSMA-SCP 2022 allocations will not be carried forward to the next quota year. However, in light of the unanticipated early closure of the TRQ, the underutilization policy will not be applied when Global Affairs Canada calculates allocations for the 2023 quota year.

Global Affairs Canada is taking several measures to reduce the risk of repetition of similar events in the future, including inspections of exports of SCPs against the WTO-SCP and the CUSMA-SCP TRQs.
