263 - 09/02 - P&I Certificates of Entry - Mexico

Since 1994 it has been obligatory under the Mexican Navigation Act for all vessels in Mexican waters to have P&I coverage. Up until now this has not been enforced. We are advised that this has now changed and that as of the 12th August this requirement is being strictly adhered to.

A valid P&I Certificate of Entry carried on board will be accepted as evidence of compliance. Copies of the certificate should be notarised prior to being placed on board as we are advised simple copies might be rejected.
