In “Oficio No. 414.2019.1983”, dated May 31, 2019, the Secretary of the Economy of Mexico has officially postponed the implementation date for the NOM Agreement which requires that NOM certificates for radio and safety include the HS code of the certified product.  Further, completion of updated NOM certificates is not required, but rather, only the application process must have been started by this date.

If the certification process has not completed, an importer may present documentation from a laboratory or certification body indicating that the process has started.  In the case of a laboratory, a test report number may be used.  If the certification has been submitted to a certification body, the body will issue a receipt or reference number that may be given to a customs house broker to clear the goods from customs.
