Technical barrier to trade

On August 17, 2010, the Ministry of Economy of Mexico published in the Diario Oficial three agreements that accept that certain US and Canadian technical standards and conformity assessment procedures applicable to audio and video products; household and similar electrical appliances and information technology equipment are equivalent to those provided for in Mexican laws.
 
The acceptance of the before mentioned US and Canadian Technical Standards and conformity assessment procedures as equivalent to those provided for in the Mexican ones will contribute to facilitate trade of these products in the NAFTA region. In particular, Mexico will allow the importation of these goods whenever the importer demonstrates their compliment with the applicable US and Canadian Standards.
