On December 26th, 2023, the Mexican Regulator for Telecommunications ‘IFT’ published their final guideline for the use of the IFT Seal on approved products, equipment, devices or apparatus intended for telecommunications or broadcasting.
With this publication on the Official Gazette, the IFT makes official the implementation of their institutional logo (IFT Mark) as a mandatory requirement for homologated products.
The publication was approved by the plenary, following the regular process of issuing a new regulation, which included a public consultation that took place between August and October of 2023.
The guideline contains the details about how to implement the permanent marking or labeling of the IFT Seal, while the vector graphics can be requested directly to the regulator.
IFT marking for products with a certificate of homologation is a mandatory requirement according to the Article 38 of the Homologation Guidelines and with this publication, the IFT adds their institutional logo, reinforcing this requirement.
Format and Requirements
The guidelines for the new logo require that the IFT mark is placed in addition to the existing “IFT: XXXXXXXXXXXXX”, either vertically or horizontally.
No exemptions are granted as part of the label implementation guidelines, so the applicants must refer to the Article 38 of the homologation guidelines, which allows e;label ONLY in the case of very small products.
Timeline and Implementation
There is a transition period of 180 days from the day of publication in the official gazette.
This regulation will only apply to products certified after the enforcement date, so any product with a Certificate of Homologation obtained before it, can continue using the IFT XXXXXXXXX existing marking. This flexibility also applies for Type A certificates that will be modified under the guidelines of the new PEC.
