Mexico: Organic Law 'LPO' Enforcement in 2021

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   MX2021-0023

On December 26, 2020, Mexico published a measure that requires most organic raw materials and bulk products to be certified to Mexico’s Organic Law (LPO) standards by June 26, 2021. The Measure includes an annex that lists the products which will require proof of LPO certification at the border. While USDA has requested an extension of the June 26, 2021 deadline, Mexico has not approved an extension and U.S. stakeholders should prepare for compliance on June 26, 2021. Mexico’s organics regulator, the National Service for Animal and Plant Health, Food Safety and Quality (SENASICA), is fully responsible for certifying and enforcing the LPO requirements. This report contains a summary of SENASICA’s public statements on this Measure and contact information for parties seeking additional information.
