On 23 October 1998, the Environmental Health Coalition and Comité Ciudadano Pro Restauración del Cañón del Padre y Servicios Comunitarios, A.C. (the “Submitters”) filed a submission with the Secretariat under NAAEC Article 14 asserting that Mexico is failing to effectively enforce its environmental law in the case of an abandoned lead smelter in Tijuana, Baja California, known as Metales y Derivados. On 5 March 1999, the Secretariat determined that the submission met the criteria of NAAEC Article 14(1), and considering the criteria of Article 14(2), requested a response from the Party. Mexico submitted its response on 1 June 1999.
