Legal news :Many exports to Mexico have to include the certification mark of product safety.
Mexican authorities require that a certification mark NOM (Normas Mexicanas Oficiales) found on certain imports, including for example for electronic products. This mark, which certifies that the goods in question meet the specific security requirements, must appear on each product concerned or - in case of a legal alternative - on its packaging.
With the strengthening of customs controls in Mexico imports that do not include the official mark NAME may experience delays at customs clearance and are liable to customs seizures and / or fines. The customs authorities also have the right to refuse entry of such goods within Mexico and to order their return to the shipper's expense.
We therefore advise all shippers and other electronic products to Mexico to ensure that all goods are in accordance with the instructions and marking NAME before arranging shipment.
The main types of product to include a certification mark NAME:
Hairdressing equipment (dryers and hair irons for example)
Computer keyboards and power adapters
Spare parts for printers
Digital video cameras
Rechargeable batteries for cell phones and laptops
Plastic bags and covers for cell phones
