Accreditation allows Mexico to open up energy market
Mexico has introduced reforms to open up the energy sector and has developed several technical regulations that apply to products and operators in the sector. As a result, the Mexican Government has declared that the testing of oil products to technical regulation NOM-EM-005-CRE-2015 can be carried out in a laboratory accredited by an ILAC Signatory.
Laboratories based outside of Mexico can therefore carry out the testing, however they must be registered with the Directorate General of Standards of the Ministry of Economy. Laboratories must apply to the Ministry and be issued with a ‘ Convocatoria‘ for its results to be accepted.
