Are you importing or selling LCD monitors, television sets, set-top boxes or decoders in Mexico? Then your product will need to satisfy the requirements laid out in NOM-192-SCFI/SCT1-2013.
The regulation ensures that TVs can receive, tune in, and reproduce DTT, HDTV, and SDTV signals.
NOM-192 specifies that TV decoders can receive, tune, and reproduce signals transmitted according to ATSC A/53 and A/72 standards. Decoder outputs must also reproduce signals in analog NTSC/M format.
Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) standards govern digital television transmission over cable, broadcast, and satellite networks in North America (Mexico, the U.S., and Canada). ATSC mostly, but not entirely, replaced analog National Television System Committee (NTSC) standards in place since the 1950s.
Additionally, products covered by NOM-192 must comply with two other NOMs:
- NOM-001-SCFI-1993, which is sometimes referred to as the “safety NOM” and covers household electronic devices powered by different electric power sources
- NOM-024-SCFI-2013, which covers packaging, instructions, and warranty information for electronic, electrical, and household appliances
Please contact us for information about the sample requirements and testing (or “protocol verification”) process for NOM-192 and NOM-001. In fact, let us know if you have any questions about the homologation of electrical, electronic, and telecommunications goods in Latin America. We’re well equipped to take your products from here to there.
