NOM-018-STPS2015: it has finally become effective!

On october 9th the NOM-018-STPS-2015 came into effect compulsorily in México, which means to leave without any effect the previous NOM-018-STPS-2000.

The enforcement involves the classification of all products in accordance with NMX-R-019-SCFI-2011 and the subsequent communication of the hazards through the label and the Safety Data Sheet (HDS) in accordance with NOM-018 -STPS-2015.

We recall that according to what was proposed by the AMLO team in Project 18, in a first stage, the current number of inspectors will increase 50%, to reach 1,500. The aim is to have 2,200 inspectors by the end of the sexennium. Also, the level of demand for professionalization and performance evaluation will increase. All this will result in increased labor inspection.
