Wheat products and barley products tariff rate quotas will be filled in October

Global Affairs Canada advises that the 2017 tariff rate quota (TRQ) for wheat products will be filled on October 13, 2017, and the 2017 TRQ for barley products will be filled on October 18, 2017.

The within access commitment tariff items will be closed for each product on the specified date and the "over access commitment" rates of duty will then be applicable until July 31, 2018.

Under TRQs, imports are subject to low "within access commitment" rates of duty up to a predetermined limit (i.e. until the import access level has been reached), while imports over that limit are subject to significantly higher "over access commitment" rates of duty.

It should be noted that imports of United States, Mexican, Chilean, Peruvian or Costa Rican barley or wheat products will continue to be subject to the same rates of duty under the United States Tariff, the Mexican Tariff, the Chilean Tariff, the Peruvian Tariff or the Costa Rican Tariff once the TRQ level is reached as before the TRQ was filled.
