IFT Issues New Marking Guidelines

Mexico - IFT Issues New Marking Guidelines
Posted by Admin in Mexico - 09-JAN-24
On December 26, 2023, the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) of Mexico issued "Guidelines for the use of the IFT Seal on products, equipment, devices, or apparatus intended for certified telecommunications or broadcasting." These guidelines establish provisions and specifications to be observed in using a seal with a graphic element as an additional means of easy identification in the marking or labeling of certified products.

The IFT Seal, part of the IFT's graphic identity, must be printed in 100% positive black or 100% negative black, respecting protection areas and minimum printing dimensions. Additionally, holders of a Homologation Certificate and other designated actors must use the IFT Seal in accordance with the specified requirements.

A 180-day transition period is established from the date of publication in the official journal. During this period, the regulations will only apply to products certified after the effective date. Products with a previously obtained Homologation Certificate can maintain the existing IFT marking.
