The MexNICA collaboration proposed in 2016 a beam-beam monitoring detector system (BE-BE) for the MPD-NICA experiment. This BE-BE detector is able to provide complementary capabilities such as a trigger signal for MPD to identify and to discriminate beam-beam minimum bias or centrality events from background and beam-gas interactions. Additionally, the BE-BE detector is useful for luminosity measurements and event plane resolution studies. In this talk we present the status of the BE-BE design, the status of prototype tests and recent simulations to highlight its capabilities, relevant for the stage 2 of MPD experiment.
