Mexico Publishes Updated National Standard Following AHRI Advocacy

Earlier this year, three revised national standards were published in Mexico’s Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF). Among them is NON-011-ENER, which establishes energy efficiency standards for central, packaging, or split air-conditioners. AHRI LATAM staff and members were heavily involved in revising that standard.

In 2022, AHRI established a working group made up of a members and AHRI LATAM staff to assist CONUEE, the Mexican energy efficiency regulator, with the harmonization efforts. The recently published revision is based on AHRI Standard 210/240, Performance Rating of Unitary Air Conditioning & Air-Source Heat Pump Equipment, meaning equipment that meets the AHRI standard does not need to undergo additional testing to meet Mexican energy efficiency standards. The full program of recent standards updates is available here. Contact: Mario Maldonado.
