International Regulatory Telecom and Safety Approval


Global Regulatory Updates



NOM016 approval will end October 19th, 2016. The new process will be NOM 208.
Between October 19th, 2016 and March 2017 the only approval required to import and sell products operating in 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz will be IFT008.
Starting in March 2017 all products approved between October 19th 2016 and March 2017 approved with only IFT008 will need to obtain NOM 208. No retesting is required for those products  but there is a fee per product for the NOM 208.
All products that currently have IFT008/NOM016 are grandfathered in and are permanent.
Once NOM 208 is implemented the products will be selected at random for surveillance/inspection. The surveillance/inspection includes re-test of a new sample. The selection of the random follow up visits (verification) is made yearly on April. 
A product which is assigned to an inspection one year, won’t be assigned the next year but the following year it returns to the random selection. Basically at some point once every two years your product will be called for inspection. This is a lifetime process.
The cost of surveillance/inspection is similar to first time certification for the same product because testing is required as well as payment to NYCE for the surveillance.

The cost is a little lower but not much, typically within $300.00 - $500.00 of the original certification.
PEC certificates will be issued with the NOM208 process.
Products approved between October 19th and March 2017 using only IFT008 there will be no PEC certificate. Once NOM-EM-016 expires, the IFT-008 certification is
the one that will be required in customs, until the enforcement of NOM-208.
