ANATEL, Brazil’s telecom regulator, recently released Resolution 680, and ATO 11542. Changes include:
- Labeling: Res. 680 Art. 5 says it is up to the manufacturer where the phrase regarding restricted radiation will be placed. In practice, we will no longer have to ask for/ present a declaration regarding that phrase. We will however still need to present a declaration should our client request the ANATEL logo in the manual only, for lack of space, for example;
- Medical implants: increase in frequency range from 402-405 MHz to 401-405.9 MHz with power limit of 25 microwatts in a reference bandwidth of 300 kHz;
- New Harmonics limits for band of 433-435 MHZ at 10mW (e.i.r.p), the emission outside the bands should be less than 250mW (e.i.r.p) for radio frequencies up to 1000 MHz and should be less than 1uW (e.i.r.p) for radio frequencies above 1000 MHz.
- Adjust on requirements for hopping systems, decreasing the interval from 20 to 14 seconds ( at less than 250 kHz) and from, 10 to 7 seconds at hopping greater than 250 kHz.
- Removal of LoRa/CSS requirements, which will now have to meet item 14 of ATO 11542 (same as Res 506)
- Requirements for UWB devices were approved. Please contact LARCG for information about the frequency bands and the conditions for each.
