Dear Friend and Customer,
 
Hoping you, your family, and colleagues are all doing well,

We just received information from SAT that today they will see the need to temporarily suspend the Joint Inspection Program(SAT-CBP) in the Mexicali Port, by virtue of the fact that they are short of personnel, since they have enough people in the guard that were COVID positive.
 
The foregoing, is in order to safeguard the health of the staff SAT & CBP and prevent new infections.
 
Administracion Tributaria de Mexicali (SAT) said that the issue has already been agreed with CBP staff.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any comments or questions.

Sincerely,
Compliance Department

Dear Friends and Customers,
 
Please be aware that we have been notified of several monetary penalties for rejected shipments issued by the CBP Agriculture Department for not complying with the 7 CFR 319.40 on marking and/or the lack of treatment in wood packaging.
 
Below are some of the reasons for penalties generated by CBP/AQI local port.

  • Not properly treated/fumigated
  • Not legible marked/stamp
  • Using fake or unauthorized mark/stamp

Please keep in mind that one single untreated pallet or illegible mark may cause your whole shipment to be rejected and returned to Mexico. We remind you that according to the regulations already established by APHIS / USDA there is zero tolerance or exceptions on marking or untreated wooden pallets.
 
Below please find  useful links and attached recommendations, suggestions and the CSMS, which were generated during joint CBP/PPQ/industry WPM outreach panel discussions by members of the import community:
