Mexico – US-Mexico MRA implementation

The Mutual Recognition Agreement between the governments of the US and Mexico for Conformity Assessment of Telecommunications Equipment was implemented (by the US) on September 26, 2017.

This means that NIST is accepting applications from US testing laboratories seeking to be recognized by IFT.

  • The MRA applies only to third-party test laboratories (manufacturer’s own facilities are not qualified under the MRA terms).
  • The MRA concerns mutual acceptance of test results only. Conformity Assessment and certification is still handled by IFT in Mexico.
  • The list of relevant technical regulations can be found here (includes radio equipment using frequency hopping or digital modulation in the bands 902-928MHz, 2400-2483.5MHz and 5725-5850MHz).
