It’s official! Publication of the draft Mexico Electrical Installation Code NOM-001-SEDE 2012 by the Secretary of Energy on 27 July 2012 in the Official Journal of the Federation (equivalent to the US Federal Register) moves Mexico one huge step closer to adopting a revised electrical code based on the 2011 NEC®. This is a big deal because it officially establishes the base for the new revision and only permits small changes from this point forward. Equally significant is the fact that a formal timeline has now been established. Beginning with the publication there is now a 60 day public comment period, which will be followed by a review of the comments and final publication. NEMA’s Mexico staff, who has been collaborating with numerous organizations in Mexico to get this specific draft version to this point, is on the committee slated to review the public comments.
