North America Type Approvals

Americas Compliance Consulting - Mexico City Panorama

Each country within North America has its own unique process for product Type Approvals. Mexico requires NOM safety and IFETEL Type Approvals which may involve sending samples for testing within Mexico. Other countries only require product Certificates of Conformity if the equipment has radio frequency capability. Manufacturers can often leverage existing FCC or CE approvals to obtain the required country Certificate of Conformity in other countries. Please note that many countries require final governmental approvals prior to importation and commercialization of equipment.

Due to the constantly changing regulating requirements of North American countries, please contact Americas Compliance for the most recent regulatory requirements.
