Mexico Update: IFT-011-2017 – IMEI Registration


IFT-011-2017 was created as a means to have all devices identified with the “International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) and maintain a complete data base (Registry) of all Mobile terminal equipment in Mexico.

If the Mobile Terminal Equipment has the functionality of “FM” from its manufacturer, the FM feature must be enabled and activated for the end user so that the consumer has free access to the FM sound broadcasting service.

This standard will remove restrictions of the operation of mobile phones and provide the final user the right to access the information by using their mobile terminal equipment without having to pay for additional data.

When did this take effect? October, 2017

Local Representative required? Yes

Samples: Yes (3)

Lead Times: 2 weeks from date samples arrive

Certification Bodies issuing the Certificate of Compliance: ANCE and NYCE

Documents Required: Spreadsheet listing all IMEI numbers assigned to the product. There is no maximum amount of IMEI numbers and pricing is same for 1 or 500,000 IMEI numbers. Instructions on how to access the FM function of the mobile phone.
