On December 16, 2008, the Mexican Ministry of Economy published a decree that unilaterally eliminates the Most Favored Nation (MFN) import duties applicable to certain vegetable oils classified under 24 tariff codes of the Mexican Harmonized System. This elimination took place in two stages, as follows:

In accordance with the Decree, as of February 14, 2009, imports of vegetable oils classified under the following tariff codes of the Mexican Harmonized System benefit from MFN duty-free treatment: 1507.10.01, 1507.90.99, 1509.10.01, 1509.10.99. 1509.90.01, 1509.90.02, 1509.90.99, 1511.10.01, 1511.90.99, 1512.11.01, 1512.19.99, 1512.21.01, 1512.29.99, 1513.11.01, 1513.19.99, 1513.21.01, 1513.29.99, 1514.11.01, 1514.19.99, 1514.91.01, 1514.99.99, 1515.30.01, 1516.20.01 and 1518.00.01.
