NFMU (National Frequency Management Unit) is the telecommunications regulating agency in Guyana. Wireless products and equipment that connects to the PSTN, along with other RF equipment, require approval and certification in Guyana.
No testing is required at this time, and we may use existing international test reports for the homologation process to obtain the NFMU approval. Technical documents will be reviewed and validated in the approval process.
Guyana has restrictions in the frequency band between 850 MHz and 999 MHz. LARCG will help determine if these restrictions apply to your equipment.
Local representation is not required in Guyana at this time and there are no labeling requirements that apply.
Examples of the type of products requiring NFMU approval.

Current lead time for NFMU approval and certification is 3 Weeks.
For products that do not require NFMU approval, the Agency will provide a ‘No Homologation’ letter to have for your records and to avoid any issues with Customs upon importation of the equipment to Guyana.
