The preliminary version of the “Uniform Regulations” of the USMCA published

Yesterday the final texts of the “Uniform Regulations” contemplated for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) were published on the web page of the Mexican government, with respect to chapters 4 (Rules of Origin), 5 (Origin Procedures), 6 (Textile and Apparel Goods) and 7 (Customs Administration and Trade Facilitation) whose purpose is to clarify and complement various provisions contained in those chapters of the agreement.

The version in English of the texts that were published is not yet official. In fact, it is expressly indicated that the versions in English, Spanish and French are still subject to legal review and authentication by the parties. However, this publication represents a good opportunity to get an idea of the content of the official version.

In any case, it is important to mention that the uniform regulations of the USMCA will enter into force on July 1, 2020, and therefore the publication of the Spanish version in the Official Federal Gazette is imminent.
