The Mexican government recently published a notice of proposed extension for full implementation of the Mexican standards. The proposed extension would delay the standards implementation deadline for organic products imported to Mexico from countries engaged in equivalence discussions, such as the United States. Public comment on the draft notice may be submitted online. CCOF is actively engaged in ensuring the needs of CCOF members are met, both in Mexico and the United States, including the hiring of Luis Lopez, CCOF’s new representative in Mexico.
