Policy Developments

  • On 11 June, Mexico notified the WTO of phytosanitary requirements for the importation of maize originating in and coming from Ukraine. The requirement mandates a phytosanitary certification from the Ukraine containing information on shipments to be free of pests including Circium arvense, Euphorbia helioscopia, Iva xanthifolia and Sonchus arvensis. In addition, it requires necessary treatment either at the point of origin or at the point of entry, which would further go through a risk assessment in Mexico for verification. The final date for receiving comments on the measure is 10 August 2018 (G/SPS/N/MEX/351).
