Regulation of border management in Mexico

In Mexico, several government agencies share the responsibility of managing traderelated cross-border regulatory requirements. The regulatory reforms that have been introduced across the various border management agencies are designed to reduce red tape, improve co-ordination and facilitate the movement of freight. However, difficulties are being experienced in the implementation of the regulations. Challenges include: full functionality of the single window VUCEM system; to undertake a review of risk management practices on inspections by border management agencies; to develop national standards and operating procedures in order to achieve national uniformity of practice, to co-ordinate management and investment in road border crossing facilities so that priority gates for registered carriers are accessed by reserved lanes sufficiently long to bypass queues for non-priority gates.
