For Mexico, all products must go through the NOM certification process before they can be sold. The customs law in Mexico requires products to be certified according to their market distribution method and according to their Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) code (also known as Harmonized System code or HS code). The Mexican government has adopted product groups which correspond to global HTS codes, linking them to the applicable NOM regulations those products need to comply with.
In total, Mexico has more than 900 NOM regulations. NOM certification is mandatory for many products, such as for cables, many electrical devices and industrial equipment, and power transmission and distribution products. Through our agreement with the national certification body in Mexico we can conduct all the required testing for the NOM Mark for Mexico. In addition, DEKRA maintains all contact with the Mexican Certification Body on your behalf.

DEKRA has been accredited for conducting quality assessments and granting the conformity certification of products based on its own testing reports, inspection services and according to national and international standards. Since 2012, DEKRA can also issue the recognized DEKRA-INMETRO Mark.
