Brazil Takes a New Look at Conformity Assessment and Homologation of Telecom Products
Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency or ANATEL recently issued Resolution #715 of October 23, 2019. This Resolution approves the regulations for conformity assessment and homologation of telecommunications products. It was published on October 25, 2019 and will become valid in 180 days after its publication. Once the Regulation comes into effect, the following two resolutions will be withdrawn:
Resolution No. 242 of November 30, 2000 which approves the Regulation for Certification and Approval of Telecommunication Products
Resolution No. 323 of November 7, 2002 which approves the Standard for Certification of Telecommunications Products
After April 21, 2020, it will be possible to carry out conformity assessment using the following schemes:
Declaration of Conformity
Declaration of Conformity with testing
Type Approval Certification
Type Approval Certification including periodic product evaluation
Type Approval Certification including both periodic product evaluation and factory management system audit
The conformity assessment scheme is defined by ANATEL in the technical requirements and may vary depending on the product type.
