Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On February 23, 2016, the Mexican Government officially announced that from April 1, 2016, interested parties could apply for a permit to import gasoline and diesel. In the past, only the national oil company, PEMEX, was allowed to import these goods.

This announcement differentiates between a 1-year and a 20-years import permit. In order to apply for the long-term permit, the Government established certain prerequisites that included infrastructure capabilities.

This measure was foreseen in the Hydrocarbons Law of 2014 but was to be put into action on January 1, 2017.
