Posted by Arturo González on 10/14/22 5:00 PM

On October 3, 2022, the government of Mexico published Communication number 67 announcing measures that will be taken in an effort to reduce the inflation that has been happening in Mexico for several months. The changes include the following:

  • The exports of white corn, beans, sardines, scrap aluminum and steel used in the packing of edibles will be suspended temporarily.
  • A license will be given to companies signing an agreement in order to waive import requirements for edibles, including import duties, when those goods are imported in order to be packaged. These companies will be entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring that the goods comply with health, safety, and quality standards.
  • The revision of any regulation that is considered to make the importation into Mexico more expensive, which includes tariffs, non-tariff barriers, and other requirements will be suspended.
