TQ claims may be received at the:
||CTQU receives a
centrally-produced printout of quota data on the day following
acceptance of CHIEF entries. Claims must not be delayed pending,
for example, examination of the goods.
||CTQU will accept quota
claims via the CHIEF Messaging System and will key the data
||CTQU will accept quota claims via email and will key the data locally.|
Send details of quota claims before 10.00 hours on the working day following the date of acceptance of the goods to free circulation. Claims made on Friday, Saturday or Sunday should reach CTQU on Monday morning. Public Holidays are not working days.
Some Tariff Quotas open at the beginning of each calendar year.
These periods coincide with Public Holidays. To ensure equitable
treatment, all claims lodged before a previously- announced
deadline are considered to have been presented simultaneously.
If the volumeof claims within the 'banding period' exceeds the available
quota, allocation of reliefis made on a pro rata basis. Similarly, if several claims
are made on a normal date ofexhaustion, the same pro rata rule applies.
The claims must be with CTQU by 10.00 hours on the first working day after the banding period.
We recommend that you appoint a person who can act as a scrutineer at each CHIEF location who will examine the daily quota reports, investigate errors and omissions and report to CTQU as soon as possible.
