Mexico Extends Deadline for U.S. Organic Shippers

May 14, 2015

Mexico City - The Mexican government is giving U.S. organic shippers who export to Mexico more time to comply with Mexico's organic regulations.

Shippers now have until Oct. 29, 2016, to comply with the regulations, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service.

The extension was announced May 8 by Mexico's Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries, and Food (SAGARPA) and published as a notification in the Diario Oficial, Mexico's version of the U.S. Federal Register. The extension allows products certified as organic under the USDA's National Organic Program to continue to be exported to Mexico and sold as organic.

The extension also gives the U.S. and Mexican governments more time to complete efforts to establish organic equivalency between the two countries.

The new Mexican guidelines were published in 2013.
