ANATEL Certification for Telecom Products in Brazil

Expand your reach by entering the Brazilian market

Gain Access to Brazil’s Telecom Market with Anatel Certification

ANATEL, Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency, regulates telecommunications equipment. By obtaining ANATEL certification, manufacturers gain access to the Brazilian telecommunications market. ANATEL uses Categories I, II, and III to specify the telecommunications products that require testing and homologation.

  • Category I includes end user products, such as mobile phones and modems. 
  • Category II includes products that use radio frequency (RF), such as radio broadcasting equipment and antennas.
  • Category III includes products, such as cable connectors and fiber optic cables.

The ANATEL Certification Process

  1. Manufacturers work with a Designated Certification Body (OCD) and an accredited laboratory to understand the applicable regulations and the required testing.
  2. An accredited laboratory performs the necessary tests on the manufacturer’s product.
  3. The OCD reviews the test results and issues 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)
  4. The OCD registers the manufacturer and the tested product with ANATEL.
  5. ANATEL approves the manufacturer’s Certificate of Conformity and issues a Homologation Certificate.
