DGN & IFT Authorization granted in December 2018
We are pleased to share that UL’s certification office in Mexico is authorized by DGN – Direccion General de Normas and IFT – Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones to operate under EMA accreditation no. 57/11 as a certification office for Telecom and Wireless products.
This authorization should help our customers in all connected industries reduce their turnaround time and accelerate access to the Mexican market.
Customers are already able to test for the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) approval in the U.S. since September 2017 per the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA), signed between the U.S. and Mexico governments. UL U.S. laboratories are accredited to test to NOM-208-SCFI-2016 and IFT-008-2015.
