On January 18, 2021, the Energy Regulatory Commission (Comisión Reguladora de Energía, "CRE") published in the Official Gazette of the Federation (Diario Oficial de la Federación, "DOF") a resolution suspending again all deadlines and terms of actions and procedures before the CRE.
In a manner similar to the last suspension resolution, the suspension will be effective from today, January 18, 2021, until the date on which the health authority of the federal government or authorities of Mexico City determine that it is possible to resume activities of the Federal Public Administration.
The suspension period will be considered non-business days and, therefore, any type of action or procedure before the CRE must be carried out on the first business day following the date of the resolution establishing the resumption of the terms and deadlines. This date is unknown at this time. However, please note that CRE will continue receiving briefs, notices and reports on Tuesdays and Fridays between 9:00 and 13:00.
On a separate but related matter, on January 15, 2021, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, "SEMARNAT") also uploaded a draft resolution to the National Commission for Regulatory Improvement (CONAMER) website to again suspend the terms and deadlines of actions and procedures, in a similar manner to CRE. If the resolution is published, SEMARNAT and its decentralized administrative entities, including the Security, Energy and Environment Agency (Agencia de Seguridad, Energía y Ambiente, "ASEA"), would again suspend terms and deadlines indefinitely.
