CBP sets tuna quota for 2005

   U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced its tariff-rate quota for tuna in air-tight containers for calendar year 2005.

   The quota is applicable to tuna entered or withdrawn from warehouses for consumption during the period Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2005.

   The agency has determined that 19.03 million kilograms of tuna in air-tight containers may be entered at a rate of 6 percent ad valorem (under Harmonized Tariff Schedule subheading 1604.14.22) for 2005. Any tuna of this type entered in excess of the quota will be dutiable at the rate of 12.5 percent ad valorem (under tariff subheading 1604.14.30), CBP said.
