ANATEL released Act 13011 (2023) this week, postponing Act 5159’s effective date. This will give charger manufacturers more time to meet Act 5159 requirements. Manufacturers have expressed concern over the new mechanical testing of power plugs that plug into electrical AC mains sockets. As a result, charger manufacturers will be able to choose, until April 14th, 2024, which Act’s requirements to use for approval of their chargers (Act 3481/2019 -Old Act – or Act 5159/2022 – New Act).
