MEXICO - Mexico has introduced a 'Reliable Importer Program' to improve procedures for imports of for meat and poultry from the US.

On 28 May 2010, Mexico published in the Diario Oficial (Federal Register) a new Reliable Importer Program for meat and poultry imports.

This programme reflects an ongoing effort to streamline the import inspection process to improve trade between the United States and Mexico.
