comprises consumer products like mobile phones, lithium batteries, cell phone chargers, and modems. These products need annual retesting to confirm the absence of any alterations in their characteristics.
encompasses items utilizing radio frequency (RF), including radio broadcasting equipment, antennas, and Wi-Fi network devices. Reevaluation is required every two years for these products.
involves products like cable connectors and fiber optic cables. These items are exempt from additional retesting or reevaluation.
The ANATEL Certification Process
Manufacturers collaborate with a Designated Certification Body (OCD) and an accredited laboratory to comprehend the relevant regulations and necessary testing procedures. An accredited laboratory conducts the required tests on the manufacturer's product. The OCD assesses the test results and grants one of the three certifications:
_ Certification based on Type Testing (1a certification scheme)
_ Certification based on Type Testing with Periodic Product Evaluation (type 4 certification scheme)
_ Certification based on Type Testing with Periodic Evaluation of the Product and the Factory Management System (type 5 certification scheme)
Subsequently, the OCD registers the manufacturer and the tested product with ANATEL. ANATEL validates the manufacturer's Certificate of Conformity and issues a Homologation Certificate.
All items requiring certification within the ANATEL system are outlined in the legislation specified under Act No. 7280, dated November 26, 2020. This roster encompasses the following product categories:
optical cables and fiber optics
data transmission cables
chargers for mobile phone and lithium batteries
rf equipment (exceptbroadcasting) such as rf power amplifiers, terminal access stations – eta, modems for digital transceivers, radio frequency repeaters, digital transmitters and transceivers, cellular mobile phones, base station transceivers, etc.
data communication equipment
ip terminal equipment(wireless)
The ANATEL system comprises two primary approval forms:
_ The Certificate of Conformity
_ The Declaration of Conformity
The majority of products listed require Certification, while approximately 15% necessitate a Declaration. The ANATEL Certificate of Conformity alone does not authorize the sale of products in Brazil. It signifies that the product complies with all essential technical requirements and can operate securely within the Brazilian telecommunication system. To enter the Brazilian market and sell products, an additional approval document, known as the ANATEL Homologation Certificate, is essential. This certificate is issued in conjunction with the Certificate of Conformity, ensuring that the product can be successfully marketed in Brazil.
