National Regulations Governing Labels:

In Mexico the Official Mexican Standard NOM-018-STPS-2015 sets out the criteria that Govern Industrial labels. In an effort to facilitate international trade Mexico has 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 in conjunction with the mandatory NOM-018-STPS-2015.

 

Additional Regulations:

For more information on Official Mexican Standards please refer to the Secretariat of the Economy – Mexican Standards Catalog. Mexican Standard NOM-018-STPS-2000 and the voluntary GHS based standards NMX-R-019-SCFI-2011 are supplemented by additional labeling standards:
