CSA Group Webinar Invite: Helping You Address Mexico’s New Plumbing Products Regulation

NOM-002-CONAGUA-2021, the latest Official Mexican Standard regulating water closets, urinals, and related accessories, came into effect on May 28, 2023. Developed by the Norma Oficial Mexicana (NOM), this standard sets forth minimum specifications that sanitary appliances and their accessories must meet, and it aims to help ensure the hydraulic efficiency, seal tightness, and water-saving capabilities of plumbing products. This regulation emerges from Mexico’s resolve to address two key issues: the prevalence of high water-consumption plumbing products in the domestic market and the nation’s priority in water conservation.

To help manufacturers navigate the evolving requirements of this new standard, CSA Group’s experts will be hosting an upcoming webinar, “New Regulation for Plumbing Products—Mexico” on May 29, 2024 at 1 p.m. EST.

What Can You Expect?

CSA Group experts will explore varying areas in depth during this session, including:

  • An overview of NOM-002-CONAGUA-2021 (NOM), including applicable timelines, scope, and exceptions
  • An analysis of water closets, urinals, fill/flush valves and flappers, and flushometers:
    • Examining the difference in requirements between NOM and applicable ASME standards, including component certification, testing requirements and deviations, and more
  • An exploration of marking requirements for applicable plumbing products established by NOM
  • Guidance on how to navigate the conformity assessment procedure

CSA Group: A Trusted Certification Partner

While nearly all approved testing laboratories and certification bodies for plumbing products intended for the Mexican market are located within Mexico, CSA Group is one of only two certification bodies with laboratories outside of Mexico that are authorized to certify water closets and related products for the Mexican market. Testing and certifying products with CSA Group offers several advantages for manufacturers located outside of Mexico. These advantages can include reduced travel, less complicated logistics, and overall convenience. This proves especially beneficial in instances of testing failures, allowing manufacturers to address issues directly with the CSA Group laboratory closest to them—avoiding the need to travel to Mexico or engage with a third-party organization within Mexico to assist with the remediation.
