Various Changes to the Rules and Criteria of Foreign Trade in Mexico

On 3 June 2019, a decree was taking effect that affects import procedures to Mexico for various products. The decree, which has been issued by the Ministry of Economy (SE) in October last year, includes changes on 64 Mexican technical regulations (NOMs).


As part of these regulatory modifications, the so-called “declaration of non-commercialization”, by which goods not meant for commercialization could be imported with a simplified procedure, has lost validity. From now on, any kinds of goods (end products, spare parts and/or parts delivered for further processing in Mexico) need to be certified in accordance with the requirements of the applying NOMs.


GPQI has created a preliminary overview of the NOMs covered by the decree. If your business is affected by these changes or if you have further questions regarding this topic, please contact GPQI Mexico (


We as GPQI will also provide more details regarding the implications of this decree during the Preparatory Meeting for the Annual Meeting of the German-Mexican Working Group Quality Infrastructure on 18 June.
