AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Foreign Agricultural Service of the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture is providing notice of an extension of the tariff-rate 
quota (TRQ) entry period for the fiscal year (FY) 2021 raw cane sugar 

DATES: Applicable: October 29, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Souleymane Diaby, Multilateral Affairs

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Foreign Agricultural Service announces 
that all sugar entering the United States under the FY 2021 raw sugar 
TRQ will be permitted to enter U.S. Customs territory through December 
31, 2021, two months later than the previous extension of October 31. 
The Department previously announced on August 24, 2021, that sugar 
entering under the FY 2021 raw sugar TRQ will be permitted to enter 
U.S. Customs territory through October 31, 2021, a month later than the 
usual last entry date. Additional U.S. Note 5(a)(iv) of Chapter 17 of 
the U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule provides: ``(iv) Sugar entering the 
United States during a quota period established under this note may be 
charged to the previous or subsequent quota period with the written 
approval of the Secretary.'' The Secretary's authority under paragraph 
(a)(iv) of Additional U.S. Note 5 has been delegated to the Under 
Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs (7 CFR 2.26). The 
Under Secretary has subsequently delegated this authority to the 
Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (7 CFR 2.601).
    These actions are being taken after a determination that additional 
supplies of raw cane sugar are required in the U.S. market. USDA will 
closely monitor stocks, consumption, imports and all sugar market and 
program variables on an ongoing basis.

Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service.
