Mexico Amends Commercial Identification Number Structure

Posted by Arturo González on 9/30/20 5:00 PM

On July 1, 2020, Mexico’s Ministry of Economy announced that the criteria for obtaining automatic amendments to the tariff schedule would be published in the Diario Oficial. New Complimentary Rule 10 establishes the methodology for creating and modifying commercial identification numbers referenced by two digits added to the end of the full eight-digit tariff classification. Mexico has used eight-digit tariff classifications since the implementation of the Harmonized system in 1988.

The Ministry of Economy also published the methodology for the creation and modification of these commercial identification numbers on August 28, 2020. The publication of the goods classified in the new ten-digit commercial identification numbers is still pending.
