Paraguay’s regulating agency, CONATEL, has released a new Resolution (No. 1193) that adds a labeling requirement to their approval process as of September 2017. The label, showing the CONATEL logo and registration number, must be placed on the product prior to importation, along with the name of the manufacturer, brand, and model.
CONATEL may grant an exception in cases where the equipment is too small to include the label.
The name and address of the local distributor (Legal Rep) is also required for all imported products, but can be shown in the User Manual.
CONATEL must be written in “HelveticaNeueLT Std Blk” font
Registration number (shown as NR: XXXX-XX-X-XXXX) must be in “HelveticaNeueLT Std Cn” font.
If the label is not embossed or printed in black and white, it must include the following colors:
- CONATEL logo should be white with a red background
- CONATEL should be written in white over a blue background
- Registration number should be in black with a white background
For future (or current) approvals in Paraguay, part of the required documents will be a label draft.
If at the time of certification, the information on your importer/local distributor is still unavailable, we may present a declaration letter stating where the importer/distributor information will be placed.
