With a background in both the supply sector and sales as well as consulting, testing and compliance, each member of the NOMExperts team has more than 20 years of hands-on experience. Fluent in both written and spoken Spanish and English, the NOMExperts team excels at deciphering the often complex regulations that businesses are required to follow in order to be compliant with the official Mexican standards for certain imported items.
NOMs and What They Mean to Businesses
Foreign businesses who desire to sell items in Mexico will hear the term, “NOMs” frequently. This is the acronym for Normas Oficiales Mexicanas which are the country’s standards that are applied to labeling products that are imported. Strict compliance with these labeling and testing regulations is required in order for a business to successfully gain access to the lucrative Mexican market.
Overseen by the Secretaria de la Economia (Mexican Economic Secretariat), a Mexican government agency, NOMs — by their very nature — are highly technical documentation that changes frequently. These standards are also written primarily in Spanish, though English translations for some sections of the NOMs could be available. It’s important to note that any such English language within the NOM documentation is nearly always out of date when compared to the parts of the NOMs that are written in Spanish, however.
In spite of their complexity and the fact that the NOMs are written almost exclusively in Spanish, businesses who desire to import products into the country are expected to comply with each requirement at all times. Not doing so could cause significant, negative consequences including — but not limited to — delays and outright rejection of company’s application.
