Regulation 7 CFR part 1530 authorizes the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) to issue under particular circumstance import licenses to enter raw cane sugar exempt from the tariff-rate quota (TRQ) for raw cane sugar imports. Raw cane sugar exempt from the TRQ enters under three conditions. An equivalent quantity of refined sugar must be: (1) exported as refined sugar; (2) exported as an ingredient in sugar containing products; or (3) used in production of certain polyhydric alcohols.

The number of responses increased slightly from 1,449 to 1,486, a gain of 37. Certain companies have increased their exporting through third-party exporters to sell their products overseas. Use of this business strategy, included in the regulation, has contributed to generating slightly more responses, which has also increased the number of respondents from 325 to 333, an increase of 8. Increased requests for waivers also contributed to the increase in responses. The increase in responses led to an increase in estimated burden hours from 414 to 428.
