CONATEL (Comisión Nacional de Telecomunicaciones) is the telecommunications regulating agency in Honduras. Wireless products and equipment that connects to the PSTN, along with other RF equipment, require approval and certification in Honduras.
No testing is required at this time, and we may use existing international test reports for the homologation process to obtain the CONATEL approval. Technical documents will be reviewed and validated in the approval process.
Honduras has restrictions in the frequency band between 960 MHz and 1215 MHz. LARCG will help determine if these restrictions apply to your equipment.
Local representation is not required in Honduras at this time and there are no labeling requirements that apply.
Examples of the type of products requiring CONATEL approval.
Routers, Modems and Gateways
RFID and Bluetooth modules
NR013-09: (Plan Nacional de Atribución de Frecuencias) Establishes frequency plan in Honduras.
NR012-05: Updates the regulation for radiocommunication devices using Broadcast Spectrum Technology.
Current lead time for CONATEL approval and certification is 8 Weeks.
For products that do not require CONATEL 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 Honduras.
