The notified draft Mexican Official Standard establishes safety specifications and test methods for lighting for indoor and outdoor use.

It applies to electric lighting for indoor and outdoor use, or for signalling or emergency purposes, that is manufactured, imported or marketed in Mexico.

It is defined on the basis of the use and performance of lighting, and will therefore be applied regardless of the descriptive or design characteristics of the light source (whether incandescent, gas discharge, light-emitting diode, semiconductor or solid-state element, and other artificial light sources).

It does not apply to the following types of lighting:

·         - Lighting to be installed on board vessels, planes and in vehicles in general;

·         - Lighting for particular purposes, such as identification lamps and lights used in aviation or heliports for signalling and as visual aids, obstruction lights, lights for photography, seasonal decorative items and lights incorporated into household appliances, tools and electronics;

·        - Lighting for classified or hazardous, underwater and therapeutic areas.
