USMCA Hotline and more | The Trading Room

USMCA Hotline for Labor Complaints

 

On Monday, August 3, the United States Embassy in Mexico published, on its Twitter account, the “USMCA Hotline”, which is a platform to receive complaints or information on labor matters. This should not come as a surprise because it was foreseen in article 717 of the USMCA Implementation Act.

 

Through this “Hot-Line”, people will be able to write confidentially, either anonymously or by leaving their contact details, about issues related to “denials” of labor rights.

In essence, this mechanism will allow the gathering of information and testimonies that could eventually be used to present a USMCA “labor case”. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is important to mention that if a party (e.g. the US) wishes to activate the rapid response mechanism, for example, the complaining party must have “good faith basis”; that is, having credible evidence or causes. In this sense, one or several anonymous complaints – by themselves – can hardly be classified as a good faith basis. However, a complaint through the USMCA Hotline can trigger the investigation by the US labor attaches in Mexico and, therefore, obtain additional evidence or elements to support a USMCA labor review.

Tariffs in North America

On Thursday, August 6, 2020, President Trump announced the “re-imposition” of tariffs on certain Canadian aluminum products because they were “flooding” the American market and, therefore, such measures are necessary to protect the industry from the USA based on section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act.

The proclamation can be found at the following link: Proclamation on Adjusting Imports of Aluminum Into the United States.

Steel and aluminum from Mexico (as well as from Canada) were also subject, at the time, to tariffs in the US for national security reasons. However, these tariffs were eliminated on May 19, 2019, as we reported.

By virtue of the actions of the US government, the Mexican government will increase the “control” of steel and aluminum exports through an automatic license, as reported in a media outlet, for the purpose of avoiding the increase of exports through transshipment.

SAT Requests Retroactive Payment of Fees for Certified Companies

On Monday, our firm organized a webinar on the alert issued by the Tax Authorities (SAT) on Wednesday, August 5, which defines the guidelines for the retroactive payment of fees for those companies that obtained their registration as under the Certified Company Scheme.

Our partner Eduardo Zepeda, leader of the practice regarding the legal aspects of the manufacturing or maquila industry, commented that this issue is “regrettable and worrisome”, pointing out the numerous deficiencies in the legal grounds and reasoning on behalf of the SAT.

For his part, Eduardo González, leader of the litigation practice, presented the recommended legal strategy to avoid possible reprisals from the SAT, such as the non-renewal of the Certified Company Scheme registration (VAT / IEPS Certification, OEA, among others).

Should you wish more information on the recommended legal strategy, please let us know.

NOM 051 en la OMC y UNCTAD reporta sobre los efectos de COVID-19

NOM – 051 & OMC

Durante la reunión del Comité de Obstáculos Técnicos al Comercio de la OMC, celebrada la semana pasada el 26 y 27 de febrero, la Unión Europea (UE) presentó una serie de comentarios al proyecto modificación de la Norma Oficial Mexicana (NOM 051) en materia de etiquetados de alimentos. Destacamos lo siguiente:

  • Directrices CODEX: La UE sugiere adaptar la definición de fibra dietética en la NOM para hacerla compatible con la definición de CODEX y, también, alinear los nutrientes que deben declararse porque CODEX no requiere declarar en la declaración nutrimental los azúcares añadidos, grasas trans y fibra dietética.
  • Producto Sustituto: La UE presenta una alternativa en lugar de poner la leyenda de “Producto Sustituto”.
  • Azúcares Añadidas: La UE pide que se informe cuál es el objetivo de distinguir este concepto en la declaración nutrimental.
  • Grasas Trans: En lugar del Sello de Advertencia “Exceso Grasas Trans”, la UE presenta una medida alternativa, más restrictiva, consistente en un contenido máximo permitido para proteger la salud.
  • Sellos Frontales de Advertencia: La UE considera que los sellos frontales de advertencia (formas o símbolos gráficos) no cumplen con las directrices del CODEX porque no permitirán al consumidor entender la integralidad del contenido nutricional del producto. El sello atraerá la atención del consumidor solamente hacia uno o varios nutrientes con altos contenidos.
  • Proyecto de Directrices CODEX sobre Etiquetado Frontal: La UE solicita a México esperar los resultados de las discusiones en el CODEX sobre estas directrices.

El 28 de febrero, México circuló una declaración sobre su proyecto de modificación de la NOM – 051.  En resumen, México reiteró que existe una crisis de salud pública en materia de sobrepeso y obesidad; esta es una acción que pretende atender este problema; hubo una consulta pública que concluyó el 24 de enero, y que en los “próximos días” se espera que se publique las respuestas a los comentarios presentados durante la consulta.

 

¿Más información? No olvide consultar nuestro Trade Alert o presentación que resume las modificaciones a la NOM-051.

 

Suspensión a la publicación de la NOM-051

No obstante, la publicación de los comentarios y/o la versión final de la modificación de la NOM-051 está en “espera” porque un Juez de Distrito otorgó una suspensión provisional a la CONCAMIN y el CCE, quienes presentaron una demanda de amparo en contra del proceso de modificación de la NOM-051 y su inminente publicación.

 

La suspensión provisional fue recurrida por el Gobierno, y un Tribunal Colegiado determinará revocar o confirmar dicha decisión.

 

Eventualmente, el mismo Juez determinará otorgar o no la suspensión definitiva. La suspensión, tanto provisional como definitiva, no se pronuncia si es constitucional o no el proceso de adopción de la NOM o la misma NOM porque es una medida cautelar.

 

Actualización: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Este miércoles, UNCTAD emitió un reporte sobre el impacto del Coronavirus en las cadenas de valor. Actualmente, el 20% del comercio de productos manufacturados intermedios vienen de China, por lo que COVID-19 afectará aquellos países y/o industrias que son dependientes a dichos insumos por la reducción de la producción. Considerando una reducción del 2% de las exportaciones chinas de bienes manufacturados intermedios, UNCTAD estima que la Unión Europea, Estados Unidos, Japón, Corea, Taiwán, Vietnam, Singapur y México serán quienes sufrirán en mayor medida los efectos económicos, aún desconocidos. La reducción del suministro de dichos bienes a México representaría 1,369 millones de dólares, mientras que la industria automotriz, eléctrica-mecánica y maquinaria de México resentirán en mayor medida los efectos.

 

Por cierto, no olvide consultar nuestro reporte de actualización sobre los efectos del COVID-19 y sus efectos en la economía China, así como las medidas del gobierno Chino.

Mexican Official Standard 051 & WTO and UNCTAD COVID 19 impact on Global Value Chains

6 Mar , 2020  

Amendments to Mexican Official Standard NOM 051, European Union, WTO, TBT, Mexico, Codex, Frontal Labeling, Coronavirus, COVID 19, UNCTAD

Mexican Official Standard – 051  & WTO

During the meeting of the Technical Barriers to Trade Committee of the WTO, held last week on 26 and 27 February, the European Union (EU) submitted a series of comments on the draft amendment Mexican Official Standard (NOM 051), on food labeling. In this regard, we highlight the following:

  • CODEX guidelines: The EU suggests adapting Mexico’s definition of dietary fiber to follow Codex’s nutrition labeling definition as well as to align the nutrients to be declared as Codex guidelines do not foresee mandatory declaration of added sugar, trans fat and dietary fiber in food labeling.
  • Substitute Product: The EU submits an alternative to replace the legend of “Substitute Product”.
  • Added Sugars: The EU requests a clarification regarding the rationale of distinguishing this concept in the nutrition facts or declaration.
  • Trans Fats: Instead of the “Excess Trans Fats” frontal warning, the EU submits an alternative measure, which is more restrictive, consisting of the establishment of a Trans Fats maximum content limit to protect public health.
  • Front Warning Labels: The EU considers that front warning labels (graphical forms or symbols) do not comply with CODEX guidelines because they will not allow the consumer to understand the complete nutritional content of the product. Instead, the label captures the attention of the consumer with respect to only one or more nutrients in high content quantity.
  • Draft CODEX Guidelines on Frontal Labeling: The EU requests Mexico to hold the implementation of any measure in this regard until there is a final outcome of these issues in CODEX.

On 28 February, Mexico circulated a statement on its draft amendment to NOM – 051. In short, Mexico stated that there is a public health crisis in terms of overweight and obesity in its territory; that, this standard aims to address this issue; that a public consultation was undertaken and concluded on 24 January, and that the responses to the comments made during the public consultations are expected to be published in the “next days”.

 

More information? Visit our Trade Alert or view our presentation that summarizes the amendments to Mexico’s NOM-051 (available in Spanish).

 

The injunction to the publication of NOM-051

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the publication of the comments and/or the final version of the amendments to NOM-051 are on “hold” because a District Judge granted a provisional injunction to CONCAMIN and CCE (two business chambers), who filed a writ of Amparo against the amendment process of NOM-051 and its imminent publication.

 

The provisional injunction was appealed by the Government, and a Collegiate Court will decide either to confirm or to revoke that decision.

 

Eventually, the same Judge will determine whether to grant or not the definitive injunction. The injunction, either provisional or definitive, does not pass the word on the constitutionality or lack thereof of the process or the standard.

 

Update: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

On Wednesday, UNCTAD issued a report on the impact of Coronavirus on global value chains. As of today, 20% of trade in intermediate manufactured goods comes from China, so COVID-19 will affect those countries and/or industries that are dependent on such inputs due to reduced supply. Considering a 2% reduction in China’s intermediate manufactured exported goods, UNCTAD considers that the EU, the United States, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore, and Mexico will suffer the most the economic effects, yet unknown. The reduced supply of the said goods to Mexico may amount to 1,369 million USD, while the automotive, electrical-mechanical and machinery Mexican industries will resent the most this supply interruption.

 

By the way, do not forget to read our update on the effects of COVID-19 and its effects on the Chinese economy, as well as Chinese government measures.

G-20 Declaration: Global Economy

On June 28th and 29th, the G20 summit was held in Osaka, Japan, and the Mexican President did not attend. We highlight, of course, the following three trade topics that were addressed in the “Global Economy” section of the declaration. First, the leaders of the G20 recognized the importance to maintain a stable, non-discriminatory trade and investment environment. Second, the G20 reaffirmed, as in Buenos Aires 2018, their support to reform the WTO, and its dispute settlement system. Third, G20 calls for a consensus by fall 2019 regarding the Steel Excess Capacity which is being discussed in the OECD.

 

In addition, this summit served as a forum so that the US and China could discuss a solution towards the ongoing trade war. In fact, the US suspended an additional tariff raise on 300 billion USD Chinese imports; currently, the US measures (i.e. 25% tariff) affect 250 billion USD of Chinese imports.

Mexico-China Relation 

This Monday and Tuesday, Mexican Foreign Affair Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, and the State Councilor and Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, gathered to agree on a joint work plan for the next 5 years with the aim to strengthen the “Strategic Partnership”. The partnership was established in 2013 during the term of Peña Nieto.

This joint work plan aims to promote trade, mainly agricultural exports from Mexico, attract Chinese investment in sectors such as advanced manufacturing, electric mobility, e-commerce, among others. The plan also includes cooperation in education, science and technology, and cultural matters.

Ministry of Economy’s Foreign Offices to Be Closed?

This Tuesday the Senate approved the Federal Austerity Law, which the Chamber of Deputies will shortly discuss and vote.

 

This in itself generates uncertainty because article 15 of said law prohibits foreign “delegations” (except those related to security) and that the Mexican State will be represented abroad only by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This Law may have as a consequence the closure of the Ministry of Economy’s foreign offices, which are in charge of international trade topics and represent Mexico at international organizations, such as the WTO.

 

If the law is passed as such, experts are worried because the members of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will absorb the tasks, and they lack experience in said topics. Will the members of the Ministry of Economy will be transferred to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs?

Ministry of Economy at the Senate & Adjustments to CPTPP? – Trading Room

Newsletter - Mexican Ministry of Economy Steel Industry, 232 Measures, Countermeasures, Mexico, CPTPP, Trade Law

Hearing at the Mexican Senate’s Economy Commission

On Wednesday last week, Luz María de la Mora, Underminister of International Trade, and Ernesto Acevedo, Underminister of Industry and Trade, attended to a hearing in the Economy Commission of the Mexican Senate.

Mexican Steel Industry

Ernesto Acevedo’s speech was fully focused on the current state of the steel Industry. We highlight that the underminister mentioned that the decree that is going to establish a raise of (MFN) tariffs (also improperly known as safeguards) is “in the process of the presidential signature” and that import licenses may be implemented for temporal steel imports made by IMMEX (maquiladora) companies.

During his speech, he also noted the importance of the Steel Industry for the Mexican economy, the global overcapacity in steel, that the trade war between China and US does not benefit Mexico, and that Mexico has a trade deficit and its major suppliers are US, Japan, and South Korea.

US 232 Measures and Mexican Countermeasures

Luz María de la Mora’s speech aimed at the 232 US measures against Mexican steel and aluminum. We highlight that she mentioned that the Ministry is currently in talks with the USTR in order to eliminate the measures and that they are also analyzing whether to do adjustment to the US products that are subject to Mexico’s countermeasures in order to pressure new US representatives that are in Congress.

Furthermore, she noted that the Steel Industry has requested “mirror countermeasures”, but that the Ministry has a more wide vision in the sense that it is necessary to have a variety of products since this is mainly a political dispute and not economic.

Adjustments to CPTPP?

Yesterday it was reported that the Chief of the Presidency Office, Alfonso Romo, mentioned that the government does not reject the idea to modify CPTPP through side-letters, statements made in an event of the textile industry. In fact, Mexico executed two side letters with Vietnam:

  • Trade on Certain textiles and apparel goods under the Short Supply List of Products and on babies’ synthetic garments
  • Program related to Registered Textiles and Apparel Enterprises in Vietnam for information sharing and supporting risk management in identifying and addressing customs offenses.

In particular, we note that Mr. Romo commented that “if we have to do a mistake, we will do so protecting than not protecting, it is the only way that we can have a powerful Mexico.” The textile industry argues that it is in a disadvantage regarding the Vietnamese industry (CPTPP party), which has State-Owned Enterprises.

Tariff Reduction: Steel and Textiles – Trading Room

15 Feb , 2019  

Trading Room

No More Steel “Safeguards”

In several news outlets, it was reported that the Ministry of Economy will not renew the temporary raise of MFN Steel tariffs, 15% ad valorem, for 186 steel tariff items, which had been extended in several occasions since they were first implemented in 2015 due to the global overcapacity and supply problem.

This decision clearly benefits steel producing countries that do not have FTAs with Mexico, such as Korea, China, and Russia.

We are not aware of the reasons behind this decision and the Ministry of Economy did not issue a press release explaining it. The last Decree that established the temporal raise of MFN steel tariffs justified the measure due to the possibility that the steel tariffs established in the US pursuant the 232 section (national security) may divert steel imports into Mexico. Other jurisdictions, such as the European Union and Canada, implemented trade remedies.

Is the trade policy of the new administration to finish with the protectionism of the Mexican steel industry and have closer commercial ties with China and Russia?

China First, Mexico Second?

This Monday an article published in INCOMEX, authored by Alejandro Gómez Tamez, Director General of GAEAP and executive president of the Chamber of Guanajuato’s Footwear Industry, criticized the new administration’s international trade policy.

The piece notes that the speech “Mexico First” made by the President is contradictory to the actions of the Ministry of Economy, mainly because the validity of the “transitory” MFN tariffs for apparel and footwear products were not extended, validity that concluded on January 30th, 2019.

According to Mr. Gomez, the Minister of Economy, Graciela Márquez, suggested to the industry in a private meeting (held on February 8th) to file antidumping investigations once the conditions are met, but the tariff reduction was imminent.  Before January 31th, 2019, MFN tariffs were in a 30% ad valorem, now they are at a 20% ad valorem level.

Mr. Gomez, mentions Mexico will not receive any benefit from this unilateral trade policy, affecting the relevant industry and favoring, in particular, Chinese products. Will we be seeing in the near future antidumping investigations in the textile and footwear sector; if so, will the Ministry of Economy impose antidumping duties which, in addition to tariffs, exceed the previous 30% ad valorem tariff that sought to protect the industry?

México en el WEF 2019 y Seguridad Alimentaria Mexicana: Trading Room

México en el WEF

Del 22 al 25 de enero se llevó a cabo el Foro Económico Mundial (“WEF” por sus siglas en inglés), que este año se tituló “Globalización 4.0: Cómo diseñar una arquitectura global en tiempos de la Cuarta Revolución Industrial”.

Al foro asistió la Subsecretaria de Comercio Exterior, Luz María de la Mora, para dar a conocer la política comercial del nuevo gobierno, señalado que se basará en tres ejes: la innovación, la inclusión y la diversificación. Estos “pilares” aún no han sido explicados claramente, estamos a la espera del Plan Nacional de Desarrollo que deberá publicar el nuevo gobierno.

En entrevista, la Subsecretaria señaló que la modernización del TLCUEM aún se encuentra en el proceso de revisión legal del texto y este podría firmarse este abril. Respecto al T-MEC, dijo que el gobierno espera que este año sea ratificado a pesar de la coyuntura política que atraviesa Estados Unidos y de las medidas vigentes impuestas al acero y aluminio mexicano.

Seguridad Alimentaria Mexicana: ¿Rescatando el Campo?

El viernes pasado se creó el organismo descentralizado denominado “Seguridad Alimentaria Mexicana” (SAM), el cual tendrá como objeto apoyar al gobierno federal con su política agroalimentaria.

El nuevo presidente, AMLO, prometió “rescatar” este sector económico, en particular, a los pequeños y medianos productores agrícolas de alimentos básicos y  leche; destacamos que SAM, entre sus múltiples objetos,  podrá “coordinar la adquisición” de dichos productos a “precios de garantía”, “promover la comercialización de excedente hacia el exterior”, “vender y distribuir fertilizantes, semillas mejoradas…”.

Algunas de las acciones de SAM podrían clasificar como un “subsidio” con base en el Derecho de la OMC y, en caso de que distorsionen el comercio, países inclusive podrían presentar reclamaciones o se pueden aplicar remedios comerciales, como sucedió con  la azúcar mexicana en los Estados Unidos.
