Brazil – ANATEL Proposed Regulation
The main changes will make a huge impact in certification requirements for several types of devices, and are summarized below:
One of the biggest changes should make manufacturers very happy: All products that previously required renewal every one year, will now require renewal every two years. Products included in this category are ONTs, WWAN devices, mobile phones, batteries and chargers for mobile phones, IP phones, and many others. There will be no more annual renewal.
ANATEL will require ISO Certificate (with sworn-in translation, if in English) for all certifications, except for those products whose Conformity Assessment Mode is “Conformity Declaration.”
ANATEL will accept test reports done abroad for some devices, such as OLT, Data Network Equipment (Switch) installed in professional/industrial environment, digital multiplex, and many others. The foreign laboratory must also be ILAC-accredited.
It’s not all good news, however. Some types of products previously not requiring any renewal, will now require renewal every three years. Products included in this category are OLT, Data Network Equipment (Switch) installed in professional/industrial environment, multiplexer, coaxial cables, some types of optical cables, and many others.
