Mexico – Upcoming NOM-001-SCFI-2018

Jul 6, 2020 | Mexico

Testing Partners received notification that NOM-001-SCFI-2018, Electronic Devices – Safety Requirements and Test Methods (which cancels NOM-001- SCFI-1993) will be postponed until August 14, 2020 (previously expected to go into effect this past May 2020).

In summary, the new NOM-001-SCFI-2018 will note the following changes:

  • Issuance of a test report will take longer. Lead times will vary based on testing requirements associated with the type of product.
  • Devices that didn’t require testing for NOM safety before might require testing and certification under this new NOM.
  • The HS code will be analyzed to determine the number of tests required. Samples will be tested under each requirement.
  • Samples will be destroyed under new testing procedures and multiple samples might be requested.
