Import licensing requirement

On 1 July 2011, the Mexican authorities adopted a Decree that regulated the definitive importation of used vehicles in order to protect the environment and society. 

Article 1 of the Decree specifies a total of seventeen 8-digit HS codes that are subject to the regulation. Article 3 mandates that used vehicles must be accompanied by authorization of the Secretary of Economy as well as a certificate of origin or a sworn declaration that outlines the manufacturer.

The regulation entered in force on 1 July 2011 and was foreseen to expire on 31 January 2013.
