CRTs Digital Certificates Made Permanent!

Posted 06/24/2020

Back in April, we reported good news from Mexico that the Tequila Regulatory Council had officially approved the use of Digital CRT (Consejo Regulador del Tequila)—one of the key documents required for export of Tequila from Mexico. Previously, this certificate had to be prepared in original and signed by the regulatory body. In order to avoid people coming to the CRT to pick up originals during the COVID 19 pandemic, they allowed the CRT E-Document to be submitted online via the VUCEM system, and now this change has been made permanent!

The Tequila Regulatory Council (A.K.A. CRT), with the aim of making the Tequila Export Certification process more efficient, increasing the level of security as well as optimizing human and material resources, will start officially issuing all Digital Certificates of Authenticity (CRT’s) including Electronic Signature and QR Code, as of June 29, 2020 to export Tequila and Beverages prepared with or based on Tequila.

This is a massive win in making the industry more efficient, and a big thank you to our partners in Albatrans Mexico who continued to push for this enhancement.
