a) Modification, Renewal and Duplicates of Certificates Issued by SENASICA.
When an importation certificate issued by SENASICA shows orthographic errors and/or typos, as long as they do not compromise the safety of goods and the identification of shipments, it will not lose its validity. Thus, no modifications or corrections will be required.
A Duplicate (lost, damaged or illegible document); renewal (deferral due to expiration date); or modification (incorrect or missing data) of an animal health or phytosanitary certificate, may be requested as long as the fee equivalent to 50% of the importation certificate is paid, in accordance to Article 86-A of the Government Service Charges Law in effect (Refer to the Standards Section). The replacement of the document may be requested through the VDMCE Portal. An acknowledgment of receipt will be obtained for the replacement request. If available, the pedimento will be attached, as well as the previous importation certificate issued by SENASICA, and the tariff classification resolution opinion issued by SAT, and, given the case, the change of the tariff classification derived from a Customs Review.
PIn case of a renewal of the importation certificate issued by SENASICA, it may only be requested once. (Each Certificate is effective for 8 calendar days to be used in importation clearance).
