In Brief

1. This memorandum has been updated to reflect changes to the Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) organizational structure and the recent name change of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) to the Department of Global Affairs Canada (Global Affairs Canada).

2. The Consolidated Listing of the Agricultural Goods Subject to Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQs) found in the Appendix was updated to reflect amendments made to 18 tariff item numbers by Order in Council SOR/2011-191. These amendments were required in order to align the numbers in the regulations made pursuant to the Export and Import Permits Act (EIPA) with those in the Schedule to the Customs Tariff that entered into force on January 1, 2012.

This memorandum provides a general overview of TRQs and the legislation that applies to them. It also outlines departmental guidelines for the administration of TRQs.

Legislation

Guidelines and General Information

General and Legislative Overview

1. Agricultural goods included on the Import Control List, established under the EIPA, are grouped into different categories, each with an established import access quantity (or quota).

2. Under the TRQ system, agricultural goods are classified within access commitment tariff items or over access commitment tariff items as provided in the List of Tariff Provisions, set out in the Schedule to the Customs Tariff. Imports within the quota are subject to lower rates of duty of the within access commitment tariff items and imports over the quota are classified under the higher rates of duty of the over access commitment tariff items. A consolidated listing of the agricultural goods subject to TRQs is provided in the Appendix to this memorandum. For the most up-to-date information regarding goods included on the ICL, importers can refer to the Department of Justice’s website or the Global Affairs Canada’s website.

3. Subsection 10(1) of the Customs Tariff grants the CBSA the authority to classify goods under a tariff item, in accordance with the General Rules for the Interpretation of the Harmonized System and the Canadian Rules.

4. Subsection 10(2) of the Customs Tariff provides that goods imported under the authority of a permit issued under section 8.3 of EIPA, in compliance with the conditions of that permit, may be classified under a within access commitment tariff item.

5. Global Affairs Canada is responsible for administering import allocations and issuing import permits with respect to agricultural goods included on the ICL. Control over imports of within access commitment TRQ goods is exercised in one of two ways: through permits issued by Global Affairs Canada based on prior import allocations to importers or on applications received, or on a first come, first served basis administered by the CBSA.

6. The TRQ goods may be imported under the authority of either a specific import permit or a general import permit (GIP) issued by Global Affairs Canada. A specific import permit or a GIP issued under section 8.3 of EIPA is necessary for any agricultural TRQ goods to be classified under a within access commitment tariff item pursuant to subsection 10(2) of the Customs Tariff. A GIP issued under subsection 8(1.1) of the EIPA, such as the GIP No. 100, Eligible Agricultural Goods, allows all eligible importers to import TRQ goods that are classified as over access commitment.

7. A specific import permit is not required by the CBSA to release TRQ goods, but is required by Global Affairs Canada for compliance with the EIPA. Importers should refer to the D19 Memoranda series for information regarding the requirement for other types of permits in relation to these goods from other government departments.

8. Importers should take note that while some over access commitment tariff items have lesser rates of duty for certain preferential tariff treatments (e.g., UST, MT), others do not. In the latter cases, the Most-Favoured-Nation Tariff treatment rates of duty are applied. The List of Tariff Provisions, set out in the Schedule to the Customs Tariff, indicates which tariff treatments are applicable to which tariff items.

Obtaining an Import Permit for TRQ Goods

9. For all agricultural TRQ categories, except margarine, wheat, barley, wheat products, barley products, and dairy food preparations classified under tariff items 1901.90.33 and 1901.90.34, an importer must obtain an import allocation from Global Affairs Canada and an associated valid permit issued by Global Affairs Canada under subsection 8.3(1) of the EIPA for individual shipments against this allocation, prior to importation of the TRQ goods. That is, an importer who received a prior allocation of the available quota from Global Affairs Canada must obtain an import permit which allows, subject to the conditions of the permit being met, goods to be classified under an applicable tariff item that is subject to the lower, within access commitment rate of duty.

10. For other agricultural TRQ categories, including margarine, wheat, barley, wheat products, barley products, and dairy food preparations classified under tariff items 1901.90.33 and 1901.90.34, where there is no prior import allocation and the quota has not been exceeded, Global Affairs Canada shall, pursuant to subsection 8.3(2) of the EIPA:

11. In addition, Global Affairs Canada may, pursuant to subsection 8.3(3) of the EIPA:

First Come, First Served Quota Administration

12. The five agricultural TRQ categories of wheat, barley, wheat products, barley products, and dairy food preparations classified under tariff items 1901.90.33 and 1901.90.34, referred to as “first come, first served TRQs,” are not subject to prior import allocations or specific import permits. The TRQs for these goods are administered on a marketing year basis (August 1 to July 31). Quota control is managed through two GIPs. GIP No. 20 covers imports at the applicable within access commitment rate of duty until the quota has been filled. Once filled, GIP No. 20 ceases to apply in respect of the goods, at which time GIP No. 100 starts to apply. GIP No. 100 covers unlimited imports after the quota has been filled, but all imports under GIP No. 100 are assessed at the applicable rates of duty, which are generally the over access commitment rates of duty. The CBSA determines whether the quota has been filled by calculating imports of these goods at the time of final accounting. Therefore, any shipment of goods in a first come, first served product category that is released and accounted for, under subsection 32(1), (3), or (5) of the Customs Act, on or before the day on which the quota is filled, is classified as within access commitment.

13. More information on first come, first served TRQs and the application of paragraph 8.3(2)(b) of the EIPA is provided in Memorandum D10-18-6, First-come, First-served Agricultural Tariff Rate Quotas.

Administrative Guidelines

Inspection and Release

14. While Global Affairs Canada requests that an importer obtains a permit prior to release for compliance with the EIPA, the availability of a specific import permit is not a condition of release for the CBSA. Border services officers will release any shipment of TRQ goods, even in the absence of a permit. However, if no permit has been obtained by the date of final accounting under subsection 32(1), (3), or (5) of the Customs Act, the goods will be classified under the applicable over access commitment tariff item.

15. Although a specific import permit is not required by the CBSA to obtain release, border services officers may question the importer about agricultural goods that are included on the ICL and, when irregularities are noted, officers will refer the transaction to the Trade Compliance Division for review following final accounting. When there is any uncertainty regarding the nature or quantity of the TRQ goods, clarification will be obtained from the importer before the goods are released and samples may be taken for laboratory analysis.

16. Border services officers will ensure, to the extent possible, that the descriptions provided by the importer for agricultural goods that are included on the ICL or that may be covered by the ICL are appropriate for tariff classification purposes.

Accounting (Final) – Non First Come, First Served TRQ Goods

17. To be entitled to the within access commitment rates of duty, at the time of final accounting under subsection 32(1), (3), or (5) of the Customs Act, an importer is required to provide the specific import permit number in Field 26 “Special Authority” on Form B3-3, Canada Customs Coding Form, for manual entries, or input the number in the special authority field of the KI30 CADEX record.

18. When an import permit issued under section 8.3 of EIPA is not obtained, TRQ goods are deemed imported under the authority of GIP No. 100, classified under the applicable over access commitment tariff item, and subject to the higher, over access commitment rates of duty.

19. When an importer has neglected to obtain an import permit and the TRQ products are assessed at the rates of duty under the applicable over access commitment tariff item, the importer should be aware that Global Affairs Canada does not generally issue permits after importation and final accounting have occurred.

20. An importer should provide in the description field (field 22) of Form B3-3 or in the KI60 CADEX record the number of any tariff classification, origin, or valuation ruling obtained on TRQ products under the National Customs Ruling (NCR) Program or Advance Ruling (AR) Program.

21. The conditions of the permit, including its validity, must be met in order for an importer to claim the applicable within access commitment tariff item. An import permit is valid for 30 days: 25 days from the date of issuance and 5 days prior to the date of issuance.

22. Importers should refer to Memorandum D10-18-6, First-come, First-served Agricultural Tariff Rate Quotas for more information on the applicable accounting procedures for first come, first served TRQ goods.

Warehousing

23. TRQ goods may be stored in a customs bonded warehouse in the same manner as other goods. However, except for TRQ Beef and Veal (see paragraph 24), before TRQ goods are put into a customs bonded warehouse, an importer should obtain from Global Affairs Canada a specific import permit for the goods. The validity of the permit, more particularly its time limit, is assessed against the date of the Type 10 warehouse transaction. This warehouse transaction requires an importer to complete the tariff classification field. If a specific import permit has not been obtained from Global Affairs Canada or is no longer valid, the applicable over access commitment tariff item for the goods must be used by the importer when completing the Type 10 warehouse transaction.

24. Beef and veal not from Chile or a NAFTA country (TRQ Beef and Veal) may be stored in a customs bonded warehouse using GIP No. 100. However, a specific import permit must be obtained before these goods are taken out of the customs bonded warehouse in order for them to be classified under the applicable within access commitment tariff item. Beef and veal originating in Chile or a NAFTA country are not subject to TRQs or import permit requirements.

25. Importers should refer to Memorandum D7-4-4, Customs Bonded Warehouses for more information on the warehousing of TRQ goods.

Proper Documentation

26. The same information must appear on both the import permit and the customs transaction documents or CADEX record. For example, there must not be any discrepancy between the net weight or quantity amount on the permit and what is declared on the customs invoice. The word “net” for customs classification purposes means excluding only such packing materials or packing containers that are clearly suitable for repetitive use and that are not classified with the goods. Any weight or quantity imported in excess of what is authorized by the permit will be assessed at the applicable over access commitment rate of duty.

27. Substitution is not acceptable. When goods described in the customs documents or records do not match some or all of the goods listed on the import permit, those goods not listed on the permit must be classified under the applicable over access commitment tariff item.

28. The automated system called EXCAPS (Global Affairs Canada/Customs Automated Permit System) allows for the transmission of permit information directly from Global Affairs Canada to the CBSA. When this system is available for particular TRQ goods, an importer does not need to submit a hard copy of the permit. An importer who deals with non-terminal offices is still required to present a hard copy of the permit to the CBSA. Global Affairs Canada issues a transaction record to the importer or broker to serve as confirmation that the permit was issued.

Monitoring and Verification

29. The CBSA coordinates monitoring and verification activities with Global Affairs Canada to ensure that TRQ goods are classified properly. Reviews based on selective targeting and referrals from Global Affairs Canada are conducted and, when non-compliance is found, tariff classification is adjusted or the matter is referred for further audit or investigation, which can result in Administrative Monetary penalties (AMPS). This focus on enforcement activity for TRQ goods is necessary to allow domestic producers the intended level of protection of the quotas. For more information on AMPS please refer to Memorandum D22-1-1, Administrative Monetary Penalty System.

Advance Rulings

30. For greater certainty regarding the tariff classification of goods, an importer may request an advance ruling. Details on how to make such a request are found in Memorandum D11-11-3, Advance Rulings for Tariff Classification.

Additional Information

31. The CBSA's Border Information Service (BIS) line responds to public inquiries related to import requirements of other government departments, including Global Affairs Canada. Importers can access BIS toll-free throughout Canada by calling 1-800-461-9999. If calling from outside Canada, importers can reach BIS by dialing 204-983-3500 or 506-636-5064 (long-distance charges will apply). Importers can speak directly to an agent by calling during regular business hours from Monday to Friday (except holidays), 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time Zone or EDT.
