The Tequila Regulatory Council is accredited as a inspection body to assess compliance of the following standards;

1. NOM-006-SCFI-2012 Alcoholic Beverages - Tequila.
2. NOM-142-SSA1-1995 Goods and services- Alcoholic Beverages – Health specifications – Health and commercial labeling.
3. NMX-V-049-NORMEX-2004 Alcoholic Beverages that contain Tequila.
 
In its capacity as a inspection unit, the TRC issues those decisions referred to in article 65 of the LIC (Quality Infraestructure 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 should be clarified that the permanent inspection carried out by the TRC is part of the certification process, as established in the Tequila NOM (Official Mexican Standard) specifically in its section 8.5. In addition, article 60 of the LIC, so the corresponding inspections originate from the activity of the certification itself.

In summary, the permanent inspection is a follow-up to the initial inspection in accordance with the provisions of article 60 of the LIC (Quality Infraestructure Law) and consequently it should be carried out as a result of the initial request for services made to the TRC by the producers and / or packers of Tequila and derived from the commitment they establish with the TRC through the signing of the service provision contract.

Another service provided by the Inspection Body 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.
