National Consultative Committee for Standardization for the Preservation and Rational Use of Energy Resources (CCNNPURRE), at its 53rd meeting held on August 24th, approved Mexican Official Standard NOM-029-ENER-2017, energy efficiency of external power supplies. Limits, testing and labeling methods.
Objective of the NOM-029-ENER is to establish minimum values of energy efficiency in operation and maximum limits of electrical power in standby of the external power sources (known as "eliminators" or "chargers"), which are used in cell phones, laptops, printers, signal decoders, televisions, among others, whose sales have been increasing strongly in recent years.
The next step for its approval is the publication in the Official Journal of the Federation (DOF), which could happen in the next months.
