SIGET (Superintendencia General de Electricidad y Telecomunicaciones) is the telecommunications regulating agency in El Salvador. Products that utilize Radiofrequency, Cellular, or Satellite technology require approval and certification in order to commercialize in El Salvador.
No testing is required at this time, and we may use existing international test reports for the homologation process to obtain the SIGET approval. Technical documents will be reviewed and validated in the approval process.
El Salvador has restrictions in the 900 MHz frequency band. LARCG will help determine if these restrictions apply to your equipment.
Local representation is not required in El Salvador at this time and there are no labeling requirements.
