RELEASE DATE:2021-09-02 10:41
Brief: The Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency - ANATEL (Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações) is the regulatory body for telecommunications equipment in Brazil, and communication products manufactured or imported in Brazil. Communication products, including antennas, batteries, coaxial cables, optic fiber and optic cables, telephone cables, cell phone chargers, connectors, broadcasting equipment, RF equipment and data communication equipment, are required to be certified by ANATEL.

According to the regulation Ato nº 7280, de 26 de novembro de 2020, as of June 1, 2021, the ANATEL certification process was implemented according to new rules, which add two new modes of self-declaration.



THE NEW REGULATION OF BRAZIL ANATEL
• According to ordinance: Ato nº 3939, de 01 de junho de 2021 - Declaration of Conformity with Testing Report. In this case, non-Brazilian test report was acceptable, and renewal process is needed for every 3 years. 
Example of products: SART Transponder radar, Automatic identification ship transceivers, Earth station transmitter and Transceiver, etc. 

• According to ordinance: Ato nº 5205, de 09 de julho de 2021 - Declaration of Conformity with Anatel Brand. In this case, non-Brazilian test report was acceptable, and no renewal process needed.

In this regulatory update, it is not mandatory to use the local laboratories in Brazil, and test reports from foreign laboratories can be recognized. The certification process has been simplified, and it is more favorable for manufacturers, especially non-Brazilian manufacturers to obtain ANATEL certification.
