An updated NOM-001 will come into force in Mexico starting May 14, 2020.
Known formally as NOM-001-SCFI-2018, the new regulation replaces NOM-001-SCFI-1993. (NOM stands for “Norma Oficial Mexicana,” or Official Mexican Standard.)
The regulation covers the safety requirements for electronic devices manufactured, imported, commercialized, distributed, or leased in Mexico.
It applies to electronic equipment and accessories that use single-phase supply voltages up to 277 V AC at 60 Hz and/or three-phase voltages up to 480 V AC between lines at 60 Hz — as well as other energy sources, including batteries, energy accumulators, self-generation, and alternative power sources up to 500 V DC.
