The new version of the Mexican General Import and Export Duties Law, including its tariff schedule, published on June 7, 2022, became effective on December 12, 2022. Consequently, several administrative regulations updating tariff classifications also became effective on that same date. This includes the latest amendments to the Export Controls Regulation, published on November 24, 2022 and the Embargoes Regulation, published on October 11, 2022.
In Mexico, non-tariff regulations and restrictions, including Export Controls and Sanctions (Embargoes) are imposed based on the tariff classification of the goods to be imported or exported. Therefore, the entry into force of the new tariff schedule affects the lists of goods subject to export controls and sanctions.
Based on the foregoing, as of December 12, 2022, exporters must ensure that their analyses on whether goods are subject to export controls or sanctions are carried out considering the new tariff schedule and the new versions of the corresponding administrative regulations.
