On June 29th, 2020, the Decree promulgating the Protocol by which the North American Free Trade Agreement is replaced by the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement was published in the Mexican Official Gazette of the Federation.

Among the most relevant changes and additions in this agreement are the following:

  • The official format of the certificate of origin is eliminated. The certification of origin can be completed by the exporter, producer, or importer.

  • De Minimis. A good shall be considered as originating if the value of all non-originating materials used in production does not exceed 10%.

  • Automotive industry. Regional content value will increase to 75% in car production.

  • A chapter on Digital Commerce was added. This chapter includes the prohibition of imposing customs duties on digital products.

  • Labor Matters. Panels are established in the modifying protocols, which will serve to verify and sanction possible labor violation.

  • Creation of multilateral agreements in environmental matters.

This decree will take effect on July 1, 2020.
