Standards and Technical Regulations

Mexico has mandatory technical regulations (Normas Oficiales Mexicana; NOMs) and voluntary standards (Normas Mexicanas; NMXs).  All products imported into Mexico must comply with applicable NOMs published by the Mexican Government in the Diario Oficial de la Federación (Official Gazette), the Mexican equivalent of the U.S. Federal Register.

 

The correct Harmonized System (HS) classification is extremely important.  All technical regulations, standards, duties and other import controls are determined based on the HS code product classification.  The U.S. Commercial Service in Mexico City can help you to identify the applicable standard or labeling requirement for your product before exporting to this market.

 

For information on how standards and technical regulations in Mexico can affect your products, please contact the U.S. Commercial Service in Mexico City.
