Delays In Type Application Procedures
On 2018-07-01, the leftist Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) was elected the new Mexican president (see the official announcement from the former president). On the same day, over 3.000 mayors, governors, deputies and senators were also voted for throughout the country - the whole political scene has changed.
As a consequence, many staff changes are expected in the Mexican public services, among others at the head of IFETEL.
Type approval lead times are being affected by this transition and will probably be until the end of the year, when the President will be sworn in on 2018-12-01. Certificates may stay under signature much longer as usual.
Another consequence of this transition to the new government might be the enforcement of new regulations. IB-Lenhardt will keep you updated on relevant changes.
