On May 17, 2021, Mexico’s Ministry of Economy opened the public consultation period for the proposed changes to the Harmonized System. The consultation period ends on June 19, 2021. The changes are expected to enter into force on January 1, 2022. The 1,954 tariff rate changes are categorized into 351 groups and include creating, modifying, and eliminating subheadings and statistical breakouts. They focus on new products and fast technological development goods such as electric and electronic waste, multipurpose drones, and 3D printers. The changes are also aimed at the specific tariff classification of goods related to environmental and social problems such as new tobacco and nicotine products, Zika virus quick diagnosis kits, and chemical products that could potentially affect global warming.
