What do you Need To Know About ANATEL Certification?
Manufacturers and retailers of wireless and telecommunications technology in Brazil must comply with complicated and stringent rules governing quality, reliability, and end-user privacy, and also system compatibility. Every wireless / telecoms gear should be examined and approved in Brazil to enter into this industry.
What is ANATEL Certification?
The National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) has been the governing body in charge of certifying telecommunications devices and verifying that they meet quality and security standards as well as authorized technical performance.
Long-distance connection, broadcast, emission, or receipt of information, sounds, radio broadcast data, energy, or any other electromagnetic activity are all considered telecommunication. The usage of telecom equipment that complies with reliability and safety criteria is guaranteed by Anatel’s certification and authorization.
What is the ANATEL Certification Procedure?
- Choose ANATEL’s Designated Certified Organism which is a 3rd party organization that analyses and approves items based on laboratory examination.
- Laboratory choice, item sample supply, project schedule, document compilation, product reviews, and registration of the entire procedure at the ANATEL website are examples of OCD services.
- OCD will certify the goods depending on the findings of lab tests.
- The manufacturer of the product submits a paper to Anatel for homologation consideration.
How is the certification and approval of the product?
The particular certification for telecom devices is provided by an OCD developed by the regulating agency itself, in compliance with ANATEL’s established and defined protocols. The OCD serves as a link between your business and ANATEL.
It oversees the whole ANATEL certification program, which is known as the Telecommunications Product Compliance Evaluation and issues the Certification of Compliance. The authorization of the goods can only be obtained using the certificate issued by the OCD.
What are the product categories?
Category I products are those that can be utilized by end customers. This type of technology should be rechecked every year to ensure that no changes in features have happened during manufacturing and that it may remain in the industry. Examples of Category I products include:
- Mobile phone
- Lithium-ion cell phone batteries
- Mobile phone chargers
Category 2 includes the gadgets that produce radio waves, like AM and FM broadcasters and receivers. These devices must be reevaluated every two (2) years, and if the requirements stay the same as the items tested, testing methods are not required. Examples of Category II products include:
- Wifi Networking Hardware
- Gadget for Radio Frequency Control
- Wireless antennas and units
Category III items are those that meet regulatory standards for durability and electromagnetic interference. These technologies work on their own and therefore have no direct interactions with the end customer. This device does not require any additional inspection or assessment.
