The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has announced they have reallocated country-specific allotments for raw cane sugar imported at the low-rate tariff rate quota (TRQ) for the remainder of the 2015 fiscal year (FY), which ends on September 30, 2015.
After consulting with quota holding countries, the USTR reallocated 157,937 metric tons raw value (MTRV) from the original TRQ for raw cane sugar for countries that were not able to fill their original allotments issued under the FY 2015 World Trade Organization (WTO) restraint levels.

An original certificate of quota eligibility (CQE) is required to enter at the low, in-quota rate under a country specific allocation.
