Global Affairs Canada has advised that the barley products tariff rate quota (TRQ) will be filled on January 30, 2020. Consequently, January 30, 2020 (at 11:59 pm local time) will be the cut-off date for accounting for imports of all barley products classified under a “within access commitment” tariff item number. All imports of barley products accounted for after the cut-off date and time will be classified at the “over access commitment” tariff item number, even if they were imported, (or imported and released), before the quota has been filled.
Please note that after the TRQ level is reached, 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.
