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.
