The implementation of NOM-001-SCFI-2018 in Mexico has been extended until August 14, 2020.  The extension is due to the fact that currently only three cert bodies and three test labs are accredited to the NOM-001-SCFI-2018 standard, representing only about 18% of the current compliance volume to the NOM-001-SCFI-1998 standard.  Therefore, products can continue to obtain compliance to NOM-001-SCFI-1998 until August 14, when compliance to NOM-001-SCFI-2018 will become mandatory.  Products with NOM-001-SCFI-1998 Certificates of Conformity will be considered valid until the expiration of the CoC, and at the time of renewal, will require NOM-001-SCFI-2018 certification.
