USDA Announces $150 Fee for Import Licenses Under 2011 Dairy TRQ

(World Trade Interactive)

The Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service has announced that it will charge a $150 fee for each license it issues to a person or firm authorizing the importation of certain dairy articles subject to tariff-rate quotas in 2011. Such dairy articles may only be entered into the U.S. at the in-quota tariff rates by or for the account of a person or firm to whom such a license has been issued. Licenses are issued on a calendar year basis, and each license authorizes the holder to import a specified quantity and type of dairy article from a specified country of origin.
