Chile Modular Approval
Chile’s telecommunication regulator, SUBTEL (Subsecretaría de Telecomunicaciones) will no longer accept modular approval requests in the homologation process. However, existing certifications will not be affected retroactively, and as such, remain valid. However, if a module previously approved in Chile causes interference issues, it will be subject to review by SUBTEL.
Due to problems faced by the Agency regarding modular approval, SUBTEL will only issue a certification on an end product. Nevertheless, if there is an end device that doesn’t have FCC test reports and grants (only the module does), SUBTEL will accept the Module report/grant for the homologation process. What’s more, in order for a declaration letter to be accepted, the manufacturer must include the test reports of the module with the application.
