To ensure compliance with its mandatory standards, Mexico requires a NOM Certification. This Certification is issued by the Dirección General de Normas (DGN) in the Ministry of Economy (Secretaría de Economía). ANCE is a private sector body authorized to grant NOM approval in electric and gas products.

For products for which the Mexican government requires certification, this certificate must be issued directly to a Mexican company or through extension holder provided by foreign company.

It is possible to obtain a 3 year certification if the manufacturer has obtained an ISO 9001 certification issued by The IQNet Association, the international certification network.
