Imports of milk protein substances (MPS) with a milk protein content of 85% or more by weight, calculated on the dry matter, that do not originate in a NAFTA country, an EU country or other CETA beneficiary, Chile, Costa Rica or Israel into Canada are subject to import controls under Canada’s EIPA.

The Notice to Importers sets out the policies and practices pertaining to the administration of the TRQ, including the allocation, underutilization, return, and transfer policies. This Notice also explains how to apply for import permits.
Applicants who wish to apply for an allocation under the 2018 milk protein substance (MPS) TRQ quota are invited to submit their application. The deadline is no later than the 15th of February 2018.
