Mexico IFETEL Approval
Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (IFT) is the Federal Institute of Telecommunication also commonly referred to as IFETEL. IFETEL certification is applicable to telecommunication equipment including wireless products. In general any product that uses a frequency to transmit and/or receive, and telecom products that connect to satellites, the PSTN, or public network require IFETEL certification. IFETEL certification also requires testing to NOM standards, but is separate from a NOM certification. IFETEL testing must be performed by an accredited laboratory in Mexico. There is no IFETEL mark, but once a product has been approved, it must be marked with its issued IFETEL ID number.
Mexico NOM Certification
Norma Oficial Mexicana (NOM) is an official Mexican standards publication body. NOM standards are used for the NOM mark certification as well as other types of Mexican certification schemes. Most electrical and electronic products operating over 24V AC/DC require compliance with NOM safety standards. Compliance with the standards are mostly demonstrated via one of two main paths: The first path is Certificate of Conformity (CoC), which can be issued by foreign certification bodies that have the proper Mexican accreditations. A CoC approved product cannot bear the NOM marking, but is an acceptable route to compliance, and provides a number of advantages as can be seen in the certification details. The second path is the NOM Certification. The NOM Certification is governed by Mexican Certification Authority ANCE. Official NOM Mark/Certifications can be issued by Mexican Certification Bodies accredited by ANCE. NOM Certifications require that a sample be evaluated in-country by an authorized Mexican laboratory. This Laboratory will then submit its evaluation findings to a Mexican Certification Body, who then issues the NOM Certificate. NOM's main products and certification methods.
