New provisions of the National Workers' Housing Fund Institute (INFONAVIT) on electronic means Last January 6th, the Federal Official Gazette published an Executive Order whereby various provisions of the National Workers' Housing Fund Institute (INFONAVIT for its Spanish acronym) are amended in matters of electronic means. The Executive Order sets forth mainly as follows: Employers have the obligation to attend to the demands for payment and requests for information submitted by the INFONAVIT through any means, including electronic means. The provisions of the Federal Tax Code shall apply to such electronic means. That is, the information to be submitted shall be digital and shall contain an electronic signature/advanced electronic signature. Employers may submit requests or promotions to the INFONAVIT in writing or through any electronic means. Such provisions shall meet the requirements to be established in the Regulations for Registration, Payment of Dues and Payment of Discounts to the INFONAVIT. The INFONAVIT may act as certification authority to issue digital certificates for the use of the advanced electronic signature in the forms and procedures under its supervision. However, it may also accept the use of digital certificates issued by other certification authorities, which will have the same legal effects before such Institute. The payment of dues and discounts to the INFONAVIT shall be made through the electronic or printed forms that the INFONAVIT may determine, which has been happening in practice. The Executive Order mentioned above became effective on January 7, 2016 and the INFONAVIT shall issue the appropriate reforms and additions concerning any detailed amendments no later than on July 4, 2016. At Baker & McKenzie we can provide further advice on this subject.
