UL-MX NOM Mark
The UL-MX NOM Mark, a product safety Mark for Mexico, means that UL de México, S.A. de C.V. has evaluated representative samples of a product and determined that they meet the safety requirements contained in the Official Mexican Standards (Normas Oficiales Mexicanas, or NOM) appropriate to the product’s category and corresponding Mexican certification scheme.
Mexican Accreditation Organization (Entidad Mexicana de Acreditación, A.C., or EMA) has accredited UL as a third-party product certification organization to perform certification and surveillance inspection for the UL-MX NOM Mark for the following product types:
- IT/AV equipment
- Electronic devices for use in office environments
- Household appliances
- Wiring devices
- Portable tools
- Industrial control and distribution equipment
- Ballasts for electrical gas discharge lamps
- Luminaires (lighting equipment)
You may use the UL-MX NOM Mark on the product package to promote your product’s certification. For certification purposes, the UL-MX NOM Mark must appear on the product unless an alternate location on packaging is specified in writing by UL via a “Notice of Authorization to Use the Mark” or other written communications.
