NAFTA, Mexico Used Equipment Under NAFTA

Postby bridgat » Mon Nov 17, 2008 12:42 pm

Generally, the NAFTA eliminates all Mexican import restrictions on U.S. products, immediately. However, Mexico may maintain, for ten years after NAFTA’s initial implementation, restrictions on imports for sale in Mexico of certain used equipment and materials. The Mexican tariff items affected are found below. If the product is on this list, the Mexican importer must petition for an import license. There is no standard form to obtain the license. Instead, the importer should submit a letter, stating the kind of equipment and how many units to be imported, over what period of time, and the equipment is not obtaining the equipment sourced domestically. Letters should be submitted to the Office of Foreign Trade Services at the Ministry of the Economy (Secretaria de Economia - SE).

These restrictions may not apply to certain equipment brought into Mexico on a temporary basis, for the purpose of providing cross-border services or performance of a contract for government procurement purposes.
