Commonly Asked Questions
How do I control my approval with Emergo as my Mexico Registration Holder?
COFEPRIS allows for the registration holder to add multiple distributors into the registration. Emergo will submit the registration as the primary holder/controller and will then add your other distributors into the registration, giving them “permission” to commercialize your products, but not to have any control or access to information. You can include several distributors in that initial registration and if you would like to add a new distributor later, we can modify the registration to include them. Once approved, those distributors can begin importing directly and Emergo Group does not have to be involved in an ongoing basis. In this way you can maintain control over your approval and your commercial relationship with your distributors will be direct.
Can I transfer my registration to another local registration holder?
Registrations can be transferred in Mexico as long as the original holder will agree, providing a signed, notarized letter stating that they will give up the registration, along with a copy of the Registration Certificate plus any modifications made after the approval. In our experience, most registration transfers are not successful as it is very difficult to obtain both of these documents from the original holder, and companies often end up having to submit a new application to COFEPRIS.
