Doing Business in Mexico: 2011 Country Commercial Guide for U.S. Companies

An excerpt from U.S. Commercial Service's 2011 Country Commercial Guide providing an overview of Mexico's standards and conformity assessment activities.

(Containing a Country-Specific Report on Mexico)

On March 31, 2010, United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk transmitted to Congress a new report on key technical barriers to trade that hinder or block American exports around the world. In a speech to Pennsylvania steelworkers in 2009, Ambassador Kirk promised to deliver this report and another on sanitary and phytosanitary barriers to American exports as part of the Obama Administration's effort to sharpen its enforcement of American trade rights and to grow well-paying jobs here at home.
