TELCOR (Instituto Nicaragüense de Telecomunicaciones y Correos) is the telecommunications regulating agency in Nicaragua. Wireless products, equipment that connects to the PSTN, along with other types of devices require approval and certification in Nicaragua.
No testing is required in Nicaragua at this time, and LARCG can use existing international test reports for the homologation process to obtain TELCOR approval. Technical documents will be reviewed and validated in the approval process.
Nicaragua has restrictions in the frequency band between 960 MHz and 1240 MHz. LARCG will help determine if these restrictions apply to your equipment.
Local representation is not required in Nicaragua at this time and there are no labeling requirements that currently apply.
Examples of the type of products requiring TELCOR approval.
TELCOR Resolution: Acuerdo Administratiovo 001-2006: Defines the approval process, technical requirement and attributes use of frequencies of 900 MHZ, 2.4 GHz, 5.2 GHz, 5.3 GHz, 5.4 GHz and 5.7 GHz in Nicaragua.
Current lead time for TELCOR approval and certification is 9 Weeks.
For products that do not require TELCOR 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 Nicaragua.
