REPSE Reform in Mexico

Holland & Knight LLP

An agreement that modifies the general provisions for the registration of individuals or legal entities that provide specialized services (el registro de personas físicas o morales que presten servicios especializados o ejecuten obras especializadas REPSE) in accordance with Article 15 of Mexico's Federal Labor Law was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation (Diario Oficial de la Federación or DOF) on Feb. 21, 2024.

For this reason, a series of adjustments was made to the registration process of specialized service or work providers, particularly the "Renewal" section, which contemplates the modifications, considering that registrations must be renewed mandatorily every three years to continue providing services. It is important to mention that the validity of the registration is counted from the date on which the REPSE was obtained, regardless of whether it has been updated or modified upon their registration, in order to avoid contingencies.

Likewise, the Mexican federal labor ministry foresaw the saturation of use of the platform and set a calendar for renewing registrations, so it will be necessary that these are made according to the timeline established, which technically grants three months prior to the expiration of the registration. Once the renewal period has expired, the platform will automatically disable the renewal module; if the registration has not been renewed, it will simply be cancelled.

Finally, specialized service or work providers will have to inform their beneficiaries of the update or loss of registration, as this is one of the new administrative obligations to be monitored for this type of services and/or works.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
