Modifications to the general rules of foreign trade for 2023

Today, April 25, 2023, the Second Resolution of Modifications to the General Rules of Foreign Trade for 2023 was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation.

Following is a summary of the points that, in our opinion, could be the most relevant:

  • The period allowed to store merchandise in a “Recinto fiscalizado estratégico” (Free Trade Zone) granted in rule 4.8.2 was reduced from 60 to 24 months under Art. 135-C of the Customs Law.

The rest of the modifications are aimed to:

  • Adjust legal references or references to government offices mentioned in different rules.
  • Establish deadlines to process authorizations to operate as a customs agency.
  • Improve the writing of rules for better understanding or application.

In summary, these modifications do not identify relevant issues for importers, exporters, or the maquiladora industry.
