    Mexico's New IFT Seal Guidelines: Compliance and Labelling Requirements

    The Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (IFETEL) of Mexico officially published guidelines for the use of the IFT Seal of the Federal Institute of Telecommunications in products, equipment, and devices for approved telecommunications or broadcasting on December 26, 2023. 

    These new guidelines for labelling policies will enter into force on September 9, 2024, and specify the following:

    • Homologation importers and manufacturers must include the IFT Seal in the marking or labelling of telecommunications or broadcasting equipment.
    • This IFT Seal must be highly visible and legible, without requiring magnification, in black or negative black ink.
    • Approved products must include the prefix “IFT” and the Certificate of Homologation number in addition to the IFT Seal.
    • The IFT Seal can only be used during the valid dates of certification on approved products.
    • The use of the IFT Seal is not mandatory for previously approved products (including those that had already begun the approval process before the entry into force date) and will continue to be covered under the respective guidelines.
