Global Affairs Canada advises that the 2022-2023 Barley Products Tariff Rate Quota will be filled as of 8:59 pm Ottawa time (EST) on February 16, 2023.
The “within access commitment” tariff items will be closed at that time and the “over access commitment” rates of duty will then be applicable until July 31, 2023.
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 some barley products 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.
