News for Mexico


  • Mexico modifies General Rules and Criteria on Foreign Trade

    Since 2018-10-24, the certificates of NOM-208-SCFI-2016 (IFT-008-2015) must be presented to the customs.

    However, the Certificates of Conformity and/or Compliance in accordance with the former NOM-121-SCT1-2009, NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015 or the Technical Provision IFT-008-2015 may still be used until the end of their validity, according to NOM-208-SCFI-2016.

    This News was published in the Official Gazette for the Federation: https://www.dof.gob.mx/nota_detalle.php?codigo=5541783&fecha=23/10/2018

     


  • Delays In Type Application Procedures

    On 2018-07-01, the leftist Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) was elected the new Mexican president (see the official announcement from the former president). On the same day, over 3.000 mayors, governors, deputies and senators were also voted for throughout the country - the whole political scene has changed.

    As a consequence, many staff changes are expected in the Mexican public services, among others at the head of IFETEL.

    Type approval lead times are being affected by this transition and will probably be until the end of the year, when the President will be sworn in on 2018-12-01. Certificates may stay under signature much longer as usual.

    Another consequence of this transition to the new government might be the enforcement of new regulations. IB-Lenhardt will keep you updated on relevant changes.


  • Summer Holidays ended in Mexico

    Mexico's IFETEL was closed due to holidays from 16th to 31st, as announced in Diario Oficial de la Federación. It is therefore prudent to expect a backlog and possible resulting delays. The next major holidays are expected in winter (2018-12-17 to 2019-01-03).


  • Authority Closed 2016-09-18 – 2016-07-29

    IFT (Mexico's Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones) will be closed for business from 2016-07-18 through 2016-07-29. No Type Approval applications will be able to be submitted to IFT for this period; pending applications are expected to be delayed accordingly.


  • WiFi and Bluetooth: Temporary Standard Extended

    NOM-121, the Mexican standard for WiFi and Bluetooth, expired 2015-10-19. A temporary standard, NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015, was issued by the Secretary of Economy, expiring 2016-04-21. The Secretary of Economy has now extended the validity of this temporary standard for six more months, ending 2016-10-21.

    Testing parameters will not change. However, all certifications against the interim standard NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015 will need to be updated to the new NOM standard by separate application. 


  • NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015 Adopted and Operational

    Mexican test laboratories and Certification Bodies have now received full accreditation to test samples and file Type Approvals under the Mexican emergency standard NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015, which applies to all devices operating on the frequency bands 2400-2483.5 MHz, 5725-5850 MHz and 902-928 MHz.

    This should not impact the lead-time of the certification process or change the process itself. However, the overall certification costs for new Type Approval applications filed in accordance with NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015 will be slightly increased.

    The products approved under NOM-121-SCT1-2009 before 2015-10-19 are not concerned. Additionally, renewal applications can still be filed for Approvals issued under NOM-121-SCT1-2009.
