The Secretaría de Telecomunicaciones (SUBTEL) of Chile issued a new document “Protocolo de Certificación de Equipos de Alcance Reducido, Año 2020.” According to it, to apply for certification the applicant must fill in the certification request in Spanish and indicate information on the manufacturer, detailed description of the device, and used technologies. There also should be attached additional documents such as:

  • Photos of the device itself

  • Description of equipment functionality

  • Block diagram of its components

Subtel can also issue certificates for modules. To get such certificates, manufacturers need to prove that models are radio electrically identical. Applicant should have relevant test reports for the models and respective photos that allow identifying each model.
