The Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (IFT) has released new regulations on homologation.
These new regulations are applicable to telecommunication and broadcasting products that use a network or the radio spectrum. The guidelines will be implemented on June 29th 2022, along with giving a 180 day transition period after publication.
Some of the main things in the new guidelines include New definitions of Certification Routes and Types, which are certificate type a: for products whose radio interfaces fall 100% under Mexican IFT Technical Provisions, certificate type b: for products that don’t have any interface under the scope of Mexican IFT Technical Provision, and certificate Type C: for products that contain radio interfaces under Type A and products under Type B. Along with a new process for registration of devices formally exempted from homologation
Another main point of discussion as well is exemptions for products considered inherently conforming, products designed for ISM applications, products for trials and events, and products for telecom infrastructure.
