Mexico Consumer Label Review

Label Type: 
Jurisdiction: 
National Regulations Governing Labels: 

In Mexico there are a number of official standards that govern consumer product labels. In general a product that is not covered by its own specific Mexican standard (NOM) falls under the labeling criteria of NOM-050-SCFI-2004. The following are examples of product specific NOM’s that set out specific labeling criteria for the consumer products that fall under their mandate:

  • NOM-189-SSA1/SCFI – Household cleaning products
  • NOM-141-SSA1 – Packaged beauty supplies and perfumes
  • NOM-116-SCFI - Gas and Diesel engine oil
  • NOM-055-SCFI – Flame retardant materials
Additional Regulations: 

It is recommended that product labels receive a Constancia de Verificacion to ease facilitation through Mexican customs. The Constancia is a document that certifies a product meets the appropriate Official Mexican Standards.

GHS Implementation Status: 

In June 2011, Mexico released NMX-R-019-SCFI-2011 based on the UN GHS standards. Compliance with NMX-R-019-SCFI-2011 is currently voluntary, but may be used as an alternative to the NOM-018-STPS-2000 mandatory standard.
