At the meanwhile, the Secretary of Economy of the Mexico(SE) published NOM-008-SE-2021 in the Diario Oficial de la Federación (DOF) on December 29, 2023.


This official Mexican standard is based on the document "Le Système international d'unités SI 2019" published by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM for its acronym in French), which includes the redefinition of some of the basic units of the International System of Units (SI). It establishes definitions, symbols and writing rules for the units of the general system of units of measurement, to be used in areas where the quantities refer to properties of bodies, phenomena or substances of physical, chemical or biological nature, regardless of their applications in the different fields of science, technology, industry, education, health, environment, trade or others.


The NOM-008-SCFI-2002 will replace the NOM-008-SCFI-2002 standard, and enter into force on on June 26, 2024, the 180 calendar days after from the day following its publication in the Official Gazette of the Federation.
