A reminder for operations exporting organic products to Mexico:
Mexico’s import regulation affecting organic exports to Mexico takes effect January 1, 2022. The regulation requires a control or transaction document to accompany shipment of certain organic commodities (listed in Annex 1 sections b–f). Work with your importer to determine if your exports will require a control document.
CCOF strongly encourages you to enroll in the Mexico Compliance Program to be ready to comply when this new regulation takes effect. Visit our Mexico Program page to review the criteria for enrollment in our Mexico Compliance Program for certification to the Mexican organic standards (LPO).
