Instituto de
Facilitación del Comercio

IFCOM is an independent private organization engaged in promoting facilitation of trade through research, analysis and training. Foreign trade proceedings need to be efficient and oriented to reducing cost, easing the internationalization of companies, to boost the country´s competitiveness and growth.

For IFCOM trade facilitation measures improve regulations, contributing with critical approaches towards rationale behind permits or certificates to do businesses, by seeking proportionality with public interest, based on evidence.

We foster paperless trade and cutting-edge technological tools, training those human resources from regulatory bodies who must primarily perform value added activities, focusing in ex post controls and risk criteria as drivers to save time. We seek harmonization with international best practices, standardizing processes which allow a efficient trade integration.
