    Argentina ENACOM Certification

    Are you looking to expand your telecommunications or electronic products into Argentina? Wondering what steps are necessary to ensure your product meets local regulations? ENACOM certification is your answer, and 360Compliance is here to guide you through every step of this essential process.

    What is ENACOM Certification?

    ENACOM, or Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones, is the regulatory body overseeing telecommunications and broadcasting services in Argentina. ENACOM certification confirms that your devices comply with the country’s stringent technical and safety standards. It ensures these devices operate safely and efficiently within the radio frequency spectrum. This certification is mandatory for a wide range of products, ensuring they’re suitable for the Argentine market.

    What Equipment Requires ENACOM Argentina Certification?

    A wide range of devices utilizing radio frequencies need ENACOM approval. This includes:

    • Mobile phones and tablets
    • Wireless routers and access points
    • Bluetooth devices
    • Wi-Fi modules
    • Radio transmitters and receivers
    • Industrial control equipment using radio frequencies

    ENACOM Certification Types

    There are two main types of ENACOM certification to consider:

    1. Homologación (Argentine Standard Certification): This applies to devices where established national standards exist. The process involves testing the device against these standards to ensure compliance.
    2. Codificación (Recognized Certification): This applies to devices for which no specific national standards are yet defined. Here, an internationally recognized certification (like FCC in the US) can be used with additional local testing to demonstrate compliance.


    The ENACOM Certification Process

    The ENACOM certification process typically involves the following steps:

    1. Identify the Applicable Certification Type: Determine whether your equipment requires Homologación or Codificación based on existing standards.
    2. Prepare Technical Documentation: Compile technical documentation detailing your device’s specifications, functionalities, and compliance with relevant standards.
    3. Product Testing: Devices undergo rigorous testing in accredited laboratories to confirm they meet ENACOM’s standards.
    4. Application Submission: Submit your application package, including technical documentation and test reports (if applicable), through the official ENACOM online platform (HERTZ).
    5. Review and Approval: ENACOM will review your application and may request additional information or testing. Upon successful evaluation, you’ll receive an ENACOM certificate with a unique RAMATEL ID.

    FCC Part 15 Testing

    If you're a manufacturer or distributor bringing electronic devices to the U.S. market, understanding FCC Part 15 is crucial. But navigating the intricacies of FCC Part 15 testing can feel overwhelming. This is where 360Compliance comes in as your trusted partner, guiding you through the process with expertise and efficiency. What is FCC Part 15 Testing? FCC Part 15 compliance refers to the section of the FCC rules that specifies the limits of electromagnetic interference allowed from electronic equipment. These regulations ensure that devices such as radios, computers, and any equipment that can emit radio frequency energy do not interfere with wireless communication. Compliance is mandatory for a broad range of electronics, making FCC Part 15 testing an essential part of the manufacturing process. To market electronic products within the U.S., the equipment must not only comply with these regulations but also demonstrate such compliance through testing and documentation. Non-compliance can lead to fines, recalls, and damage to a company's reputation. What Are the Types of Part 15 Devices? Part 15 devices fall into two broad categories: Class A Devices Class A devices are typically industrial or commercial equipment intended for use in business environments. These devices are subject to less stringent emissions limits compared to Class B devices. This devices are expected to be used in environments where there is some level of professional IT staff to manage and mitigate any potential electromagnetic interference. Class B Devices Class B devices are consumer-oriented electronic products intended for use in residential environments. These devices must meet stricter emissions limits compared to Class A devices to ensure they don't cause interference with other electronic devices commonly found in homes, such as TVs, radios, and Wi-Fi routers. What Products Require FCC Part 15 Certification? Any electronic device that emits radio frequency (RF) energy needs to undergo FCC Part 15 testing. This includes: Intentional radiators Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices Remote controls Radio transmitters Wireless microphones Cellular phones RF identification (RFID) tags Unintentional radiators Computers and their peripherals Switching power supplies LED lights Certain types of electronic equipment like oscilloscopes Home appliances with digital interfaces Some types of industrial machinery How Can 360Compliance Help in the FCC Part 15 Testing Process? 360Compliance provides a streamlined solution to these challenges.
