Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On December 12, 2016, the Mexican Secretariat of Economy established new requirements for the importation of certain "sensitive" goods under the IMMEX Program. The new law established that companies willing to import sensitive goods had to comply with the following requirements:

  • provide information on the goods to be temporarily imported and the finished product where they will be used;
  • provide specific information regarding the company, including inventory, production capacity, facilities, products and employees, all reported by a Registered Public Accountant;
  • provide documentation regarding employees hired through outsourcing; and
  • inform about the companies to whom the finished products will be transferred.

These requirements are mandatory since January 31, 2017.

These authorizations to temporarily import sensitive goods under the IMMEX Program will last for four months. theIMMEX program enables its participants to defer taxed on temporary imorts and allows them to consolidate import declarations.
