The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA), through the National Health, Harmlessness and Agri-food Quality Service (SENASICA), and the customs and intermodal railway sector of Mexico signed an Agreement Convention with the aim of coordinating actions to modernise the infrastructure, and the plant and animal certification and inspection processes and services in agri-food trade transactions.
The agreement seeks the optimisation of the human, infrastructures, materials and equipment resources required for the inspection activities, as well as implementing more detailed procedures for the checking of high-risk products.
The aim is to implement a pilot test of the Inspection Service Comprehensive System (SISI), created to strengthen the procedures that allow to reduce the risk regarding the entrance of pests and quarantine diseases in Mexico.
The pilot test will last six months, and its goal is to make the inspection service caried out by the SENASICA more efficient.
