3. Declaration of Value and code PV

4. COVE (Comprobante de valor electronico-Ventanilla Única)


Certified Companies (NEEC-CTPAT)

  • On December 15, 2011 in the 4th modification of the Customs Rules modified the Certified Companies regulations. It included a new type called “NEEC”. This modification is in effect since Jan. 2, 2012. (Rule 3.8.1)
  • Rule 3.8.1 section “L” includes this new type of certified company.

Includes several sectors moved from other sections of the rule:

IMMEX controladoras (apartado E)

IMMEX de manufactura y reparación de aeronaves (apartado G)

Empresas que cuenten con SECIIT (apartado H)

Industria química (apartado K)

Other companies can apply for this section L too.

The application has general requirements and must have a favorable authorization by (ACAI) Administración Central de Asuntos Internacionales.


Certified Companies (NEEC-CTPAT)

  • Requirements to apply section L (NEEC)
  • Have customs transactions for 5 years. New companies can NOT apply.
  • Be able to issue digital fiscal invoices.  
  • Apply to ACAI for the favorable authorization mentioned on rule 3.8.1
  • Must comply with the “security profile”.
  • Terms for authorization:
  • ACAI 100 days (Negativa ficta)
  • Importer 30 days (Application to ACRA)
  • ACRA 40 days
  • Total 6 months

Certified Companies (NEEC-CTPAT)

  • Actual authorizations.
  • If you had an authorization when this was published you will continue to benefit until its termination.
  • Limitation.
  • If you do not comply with the requirements as the security profile you can’t apply again in the next 2 years for section “L”. And 6 months for the rest.

Certified Companies (NEEC-CTPAT)

  • Declare IC code for certified companies in pedimentos. Jan 2012

Modification to pedimento code RT. Annex 22

  • December 6, 2011 was published the code RT for “IMMEX exports”:

This means that all exports by IMMEX (raw materials, fix assets, finish goods, service maquila, and scrap) must use code RT and not H1 how we did in the past. Since December.

This resolves the problem we had in declaring value added in pedimento H1.


Declaration of Value and code PV

  • Addition of code PV in Annex 22 of Customs Rules on December 6, 2011.

( Prueba de Valor)

  • This relates to the elimination of countervailing duties to China on December 11, 2011. The Mexican government and the representatives of the affected industries in Mexico concerned that this products would enter under declaring the value of this goods, created a mechanism to verify the international value of this goods.
  • Since December 15, 2011 Customs is verifing the value of this goods declared in the pedimentos thru the “prevalidation” process.

Declaration of Value and code PV

  • SAT thru Customs is doing a risk analysis on sensitive HTS classifications. The first phase includes 413 HTS for textiles, then they will include shoes, clothing and toys.

Customs Broker can declare PV only if they have the Declaration of Value signed by the importer. This is issued every 6 months.

They can not determine valuation method, and related parties, etc.

We can’t have access to the values they determined.

Consequence: investigation to Importer or Broker, fines and duties.


COVE (Comprobante de valor electronico-Ventanilla Única)

Legal support for Ventanilla Única and COVE

January 14, 2011 Decree that establishes the “Ventanilla Digital Mexicana de Comercio Exterior”. (12 Articles and 2 Transitory)

COVE is also funamentated in Art. 36 of Customs Law (Administración de Competencias y Modernización Aduanera)

COVE It’s similar to the e-manifest for US Customs.
