As the appliance industry continues to globalize, certification agencies are expanding their geographic scope to keep pace.  Each of these agencies is striving to become the easiest certification channel to international markets—and the most economical. In fact, UL recently developed packages for those exporting lighting and other products around the world. With North America and Mexico market access, OEMs applying for new cULus certification also get the NOM (Normas Oficiales Mexicanas) mark for access to Mexico.

NOM certification is compulsory for more than 2000 product categories on the Mexican market. These range from lighting and related components to IT and telecommunication devices. Until recently, however, OEMs needed to work directly with the Mexican government to test and certify products. UL has now established subcontracted test data exchange agreements with testing labs in Mexico, allowing it to conduct NOM testing that can be used to generate a valid test report.

UL, in fact, recently issued its first NOM mark to a global electronics manufacturing customer entering the Mexican market.

The certification agency has signed a number of international agreements to broaden its scope, and in recent months these included an agreement with the Saudi Arabian Standards Organization (SASO) to promote UL safety standards in the development of national safety standards in Saudi Arabia. A similar agreement was signed with the Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ).
