“We welcome these new measures, as they bring U.S. and Mexican standards closer to harmonization. We applaud Mexico for recognizing the compatibility of U.S. and Mexican standards for the testing and certification of certain products and working to remove what can often be time-consuming and unnecessary procedural requirements for some U.S. exporters,” said NFTC Vice President for Regional Trade Issues Chuck Dittrich. “By simplifying a number of trade-related procedures, these measures have the potential to significantly increase U.S. exports and strengthen the North American export platform.”
Mexican President Felipe Calderon announced the 12 measures on August 17, 2010.
