Underwriters Laboratories recently issued the first Normas Oficiales Mexicanas (NOM) Mark to a global electronics manufacturing customer entering the Mexican market. UL worked closely with the government of Mexico to obtain accreditation as a third-party product certification organization to help speed entry into the market.
 
There are nearly 2000 product categories—ranging from household appliances to electronics—that must undergo mandatory testing to the NOM standards by a nationally accredited body. Until recently, companies worked directly with the Mexican government to test and certify products. To quicken this process, UL established subcontracted test data exchange agreements with testing laboratories in Mexico. The agreements allow UL to conduct NOM testing that can be accepted and used to generate a valid test report. Essentially, products can be tested in the U.S. for multiple marks, including the NOM with results verified by a laboratory in Mexico, which means less product shipping, less management, and faster time to market.
