Import tariff quota

On December 26, 2017, the Mexican Secretariat of Economy announced the Agreement on the import tariff quotas for onions and lemons (HS Codes 0703.10.01, 0805.50.01, 0805.50.02 and 0805.50.99). 

In the case of onions, the duty-free quota has been set at 100,000 tonnes to be assigned on a first come, first served basis. The allocation will be made based on the following criteria choosing always the one that gives a lower outcome: demanded quantity; commercial invoice; or the balance of quota. The maximum volume to be assigned per beneficiary is 10,000 tonnes. The applicable import tariff outside the quota is 10%.

As for lemons,  the duty-free quota has been set at 140,000 tonnes also to be assigned on a first come, first served basis. The allocation will be made based on the following criteria choosing always the one that gives a lower outcome: demanded quantity; commercial invoice; or the balance of quota. In this case, the maximum quantity assigned per importer will never be greater than 14,000 tonnes. The applicable import tariff outside the quota is 20%.

Previously, no import tariff quota applied to these two goods.
