Errata: The version of this report issued on March 28, 2023, with the title “Government of Mexico Announces 2023 Quota for Glyphosate Imports,” included an incorrect figure for the 2021 glyphosate import quota in the first paragraph on page 2 of the report. The figure for the 2021 glyphosate import quota in this version is corrected to 16,526 tons.

On March 19, 2023, Mexico’s Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS) announced the annual import quota for two types of the agrochemical glyphosate. The 2023 quota is set at 4,131 tons of formulated glyphosate and 314 tons of technical glyphosate. The glyphosate import quota was implemented in 2021 under the 2020 Corn Decree and reaffirmed in the revised 2023 Corn Decree.
