In its capacity as a verification unit, the TRC issues those decisions referred to in article 85 of the LFMN (Federal Metrology and Standardization Law). These decisions are recognized by all competent government agencies as well as by the TRC’s own product certification body and, based on such decisions, both the authorities and the Certifying Body can act as established by this Law and according to their specific authority".

It is important to point out that the permanent verification activities undertaken by the TRC are part of the certification process, as established by the Tequila NOM (Official Mexican Standard), specifically in its resolution dated February 1st, 2000. In a supplemental manner, article 80 of the Federal Metrology and Standardization Law (LFMN) sets forth that such certification activities shall include, among others, "follow-up after the initial certification, to verify compliance of standards…", and thus the corresponding verification activities originate as a result of the activities for certification itself.

In summary, permanent verification is but the follow up of the initial verification in accordance to the provisions of article 80 of the Federal Metrology and Standardization Law (LFMN) and consequently, undertaking such activities is applicable as a result of the initial request for services submitted to the TRC by Tequila producers and bottlers and is derived from the understanding they sign with the TRC through the execution of the corresponding service agreement.

Another service provided by the Verification Unit is issuing commercial information reports for labeling of Tequila. These reports are based on the provisions of article 50 of the regulations of the Federal Metrology and Standardization Law.

Additionally, we have a data base available to our members and clients so they may find the commercial information requirements in effect in different countries around the world.
