These affect ex-porting of food products as well as new provisions and verification procedures. Of primary concern to food companies are the regulations titled Official Mexican Standard NOM-051-SCFI-1994 General Specifications for Labeling Prepackaged Foods and Nonalcoholic Beverages. The guide is available for $199 (NFPA members $99). NFPA can be reached at 202/639-5900.
