However, any tractor imported above this quantity would be subject to a tariff rate of 30%.Unlike a simple quota system, a TRQ regime does not restrict the quantity of imported products.

The out of quota commitment does not set any limit on the quantity or value of a imported product, but instead applies a different, normally higher, tariff rate to that product.
