  • ANATEL Report Nº 55 - New Acts 2220 / 2221 / 2222

    ANATEL Resolution 715 will come in force on April 22nd 2020. Due to the COVID-19 situation, ANATEL postponed the Public Consultation of the Operational Procedures


    ANATEL published three new Acts in order to keep the Res. 715 in force. This new act brought not much changes in comparison to Res. 242.

    The main changes are:

    Act 2220 (April 20th, 2020)

    Operational Procedure for Telecommunication Products' Conformity Assessment by Certification

    ·There is no more Product division by categories (I, II, III);

    ·Certification is now based on 3 models: 

    -          TYPE 1 scheme - Certification based on Type Testing. This model does not include the maintenance stage (like the rules used for Category III before);

    -          TYPE 4 scheme - Certification based on Type Testing with Periodic Product Evaluation (periodic maintenance) according to the Telecommunications Products Reference List (like the rules used for Category II before);

    -          TYPE 5 scheme - Certification based on Type Testing with Periodic Product Evaluation (periodic maintenance) and the Factory Management System (like the rules used for Category I before).

    ·The equipment's firmware or software identification and version should be included in the OCD RACT (Technical Compliance Assessment Report), if any of these items of the product’s design and operation interferes with the mandatory requirements for certification;

    ·In case of OCD transferring, the OCD responsible for the initial certification must make the documents available to the new OCD within 7 (seven) working days.

    Act 2221 (April 20th, 2020)

    Operational Procedure for Anatel Homologation Identification Marking in Telecommunications Products

    ·E-Label is acceptable (see the Act 2221 item 6 for more details);

    ·ANATEL symbol (logo) is now optional in the marking, so it is up to the manufacturer to use it or not. It is possible to use the simplified marking (ANATEL: HHHHH-AA-FFFFF) for all devices, not only for the small size like before;

    ·Devices where there is no enough space, if duly proved, and also where there is no other certification marking (such as FCC) can waive the marking in its label, being possible to include in the manual.

    ·The ANATEL marking on the product must be provided prior to use or making it available on the market. In the case of imported telecommunications products, the marking of the approval must be placed before the product enters in Brazil (in force after 6 months of the Act 2221 publication), except for the following cases:

    -          Unfinished products subject to approval whose import is carried out by the Applicant to finalize the product in national territory;

    -          Products that require the use of Security Seal (Mint Label), such as Mobile phones’ charger and batteries; and

    -          Products for the importer's own use

    Act 2222 (April 20th, 2020)

    Telecommunication Products Reference List

    The Telecommunications Products Reference List classifies products into families, taking into consideration the similarity of the technical characteristics and the field of application of the products, and describes the modality and model of conformity assessment applicable to each type or family of products subjected to approval by Anatel, and there is no more product division by categories.

    This List remains with the same current products, that is, there have been no updates of Product Types. As Categories I, II and III that defined the Maintenance period were excluded, the Conformity Assessment Model was added to the last column of this list, informing the Periodic Evaluation of the Product.

    Suspension and Cancellation of Certificate of Conformity
    It is no longer mandatory to notify by Anatel the certificate applicant of the suspension of its validity, through postal service with proof of receipt.

    Market Supervision Program:
    Telecommunications products may be submitted to a Market Supervision Program, whose purpose is to verify that products approved by Anatel still in compliance with the Technical Requirements.

    Anatel will develop this activity, with the support of the Designated Certification Body (OCD).

    1) Exemption from Anatel Fees;
    2) Registered the fact that the national manufacturer should be the applicant himself for the certificate of technical conformity and approval;
    3) The applicant shall promote any adjustments and diligences requested by Anatel, within the indicated period, otherwise the lack of interest and consequent cancellation of the homologation request will be characterized. Disinterest is also characterized when, after notification, the Applicant does not comply with the requested steps or does not manifest within 30 (thirty) days.
    4) Identification of the homologation (Anatel label) must be made before the imported telecommunications products, intended for commercialization, enter the country, except in the cases and situations defined in the Operational Procedure.
    5) Possibility of transferring or sharing the right to market the product for telecommunications in the country.
    Testing Laboratories:
    Anatel in the Operational Procedure and in the Technical Requirement will establish the order of laboratory priority. Currently, this prioritization is made as established in Management Instrument 01 (IG-01).

  • ANATEL Specifies EMC Requirements

  • EMC Testing Now Mandatory

    As we have been informed by our local partners, from today onwards EMC testing will be mandatory in Brazil. Previously, ANATEL had delayed this new requirement for EMC twice to accommodate labs with more time.

  • Brazil postpones EMC tests again by two months

    As previously reported, Anatel had already delayed the publication of new EMC test procedures which are required by act N° 14448. This delay was recently prolonged once again, as Act N° 4735 states "until the Agency has completed studies for [...] standardized testing [...] or for two (2) months, whichever occurs first."

    Thus, the deadline may extend up to 2018-09-01.


  • Brazilian Customs on Strike

    Brazilian imports are stalling because fiscal auditors of the Federal Revenue and Customs Offices are on strike. They have been in dispute with the Brazilian government over pays and benefits since November last year. In Santos, the auditors recently voted to extend the strike until 30th of June. Unfortunately that also affects any sample shipping.

  • Brazil Postpones New Act 14448 By 3 Months

    Brazilian's ANATEL had drafted new rules in ATO 14448 but has now postponed those by a new act: ANATEL ATO n°2311.

    Thus, the deadline of ATO 14448 is extended from its original date 2018-04-02 by up to 3 months until ANATEL publishes new test rules.


  • ANATEL requires EMC testing

    During the re-organisation of its approval process for radiocommunication devices, the ANATEL requires EMC testing. This follows the new ANATEL regulation ATO 14448, which makes EMC testing mandatory, according to ANATEL ATO 952 for restricted radiocommunication equipment. The ANATEL Resolution 442 (EMC) has been repealed, the equipments which have already been tested and approved under Resolution 442 will be updated during the next maintenance process. 

    The new procedure becomes effective for all approvals and renewals on 2018-04-02.

    The approvals issued before that date remain valid until their expiring date.

  • New Requirements for Cell Phone Chargers

    Brazil’s regulator ANATEL issued new requirements for cell phone chargers, especially for vehicle and wireless chargers intended to be used with cell phones. These chargers will be listed as Category I products (1 year validity).

    Whereas the regulation is applicable for vehicular cell phone chargers as of 2018-01-06 (ANATEL Act no. 493), no date has yet been set for wireless chargers.

    Moreover, in-country testing will be required, including both the chargers and the cell phone they are intended to be used with.

Safety Information for Brazil

Type C Plug

127, 220V

The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
Type N Plug
Type N Sock Type N Plug Type N Sock
127, 220V

There are two variations of the Type N plug, one rated at 10 amps, and one at 20 amps. The 10 amp version has two round pins that are 4 mm thick, and a grounding pin. The 20 amp version, used for heavier appliances, has two round pins 4.8 mm in diameter, and a grounding pin. The Type N socket was designed to work with Type C plugs as well. Brazil is one of the few countries that uses two types of voltage. While most states use 127 V, some of them use 220 V. It is therefore important to find out the local voltage before plugging in your appliance (note: wrong voltage can destroy your appliance). Many appliances sold in Brazil are dual voltage.
