A key stumbling block when retail companies start the NOM certification process is the language barrier. In most cases, the bulk of the regulations and requirements are written exclusively in Spanish. Some portions of the standards have been translated to English but, understandably, those are not the ones that are necessarily kept updated.
The language that is contained within the NOM regulations and requirements can be arduous and complex for those who don’t have a firm grasp on the Spanish language. This is why it’s important for any business that is considering a company that offers NOM services ensure that only native Spanish speakers are used. Only they can decipher the legalese that is contained within the standards since they are maintained and released by a governmental agency.
When a retail business partners with NOMExperts, they have access to the following translation services by qualified native Spanish speaking individuals:
- Legal contracts
- Instruction manuals
Textile Labeling Requirements
NOM-004 encompasses the requirements for importing textiles into Mexico. Just like the other standards imposed by the Mexican government, each textile item must be compliant with the language contained within that NOM or risk being delayed at the border. Knowing how to successfully navigate the textile labeling requirements by choosing to consult with NOMExperts helps ensure that the company’s products get into the Mexican market as soon as possible.
