CCOF has received clarification regarding the import of organic products into Mexico. All products with organic claims crossing the border to Mexico must be accompanied by a Mexico organic certificate and a Control/International Transaction Document. Border officials have begun to reject shipments if products making organic claims are not accompanied by these two documents.
To be issued a Mexico organic certificate and Control/International Transaction Document, enroll in the CCOF Mexico Compliance Program (MCP) by submitting an MCP Application to firstname.lastname@example.org. This update is eligible for Rush Review and does not require an additional inspection for operations already certified to USDA NOP regulations.
