Brazil Extends Maintaining Certification Procedure Within COVID-19
The Anatel (Brazilian Telecom Authority) issued Official Letter 585 on September 25, 2020. The letter relates to the certification activities on the telecommunication equipment during the COVID-19 epidemic.
Prior, the Anatel has already officially informed about the temporary procedure for the mandatory maintenance of the certificate via the Official Letter No 134/2020/ORCN/SOR-ANATEL, the conditions according to the Official Letters No. 194/2020/ORCN/SOR-ANATEL and 384/2020/ORCN/SOR-ANATEL. There, the Anatel gave specific instructions for the certification bodies with regard to temporary measures on the mandatory maintenance of the certificate procedure and specified the required documents necessary from the suppliers to get an opportunity to apply for the maintenance of the certificate through this temporary procedure. The validity period for these letters has already completed but the situation in the world is hardly back to normal.
That is why the Anatel decided to extend the temporary measures for mandatory maintenance of the certificate procedure and issued this official letter 585/2020/ORCN/SOR-ANATEL. According to this letter, the Anatel extends the validity of the instructions contained in Letter No. 134/2020/ORCN/SOR-ANATEL for products with the Certificates of Conformity. These rules are valid until December 30, 2020.
