Anixter Logística y Servicios in NOM certification Process
Electrical products must meet additional mandatory requirements regarding energy efficiency.
The Norma Oficial Mexicana (NOM) certification is a set of regulations and standards that are required by the Mexican government for a number of diverse activities. Every product that enters Mexico must meet the requirements outlined in NOM.
All electrical products exported into Mexico must meet NOM requirements as well as relevant energy efficiency requirements. Electrical & Electronic products must comply (as applicable) with relevant regulations for:
- Energy Efficiency / Sustainable Energy Use Law (LASE) declaration.
- Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
- Commercial Information.
As proof of our commitment to the Mexican markets and its requirements Anixter Logistica y Servicios made significant investments certifying a broad array of product families. In the future this will give our customers access to a larger portfolio and improved service.
While Anixter is working diligently in minimizing any impact on lead times we are still subject to Mexican Certification Entities. This might cause some delays in lead times out of our control.
Important facts to take into consideration
- While the NOM is not new, however, it now also states that imported products must have evidence of complicance with NOM standards. Beginning June 1, 2019, goods cannot be imported to Mexico without demonstrating compliance with the applicable NOMs.
- The certification process for a product family usually takes between 40 to 50 days.
- Anixter is taking the necessary actions to minimize the impact that this could have on its customers and is working hard, in coordination with its manufacturers, to certify those products subject to this standard.
- The regulation does not apply to products temporarily imported into Mexico through the IMMEX program (formerly known as Maquiladora program).
