Uruguay has two regulatory bodies for telecommunications approvals, one for wireless URSEC (Unidad Reguladora de Servicios de Comunicaciones), and the other for hard-wired telecom equipment ANTEL (Administración Nacional de Telecomunicaciones). These agencies are responsible for verifying the compliance of telecommunications equipment with applicable regulations in order to commercialize in Uruguay.
No testing is required in Uruguay at this time, we can use existing international test reports for the homologation process to obtain the product approval. Technical documents will be reviewed and validated in the approval process.
Panama has restrictions in the frequencies between 902 MHz and 928 MHz. LARCG will help determine if these restrictions apply to your equipment and help you obtain exceptions if possible.
Local representation is not required in Panama at this time and there are no labeling requirements that currently apply.
Examples of the type of products requiring approval:
URSEC RESOLUTION 089, 2003: Radio Spectrum Regulation
Current lead time for URSEC approval and certification is 3 Weeks.
Current lead time for ANTEL approval and certification is 7 Weeks.
For products that do not require approval in Uruguay, the Agencies will provide a ‘No Homologation’ letter to have for your records and to avoid any issues with Customs upon importation of the equipment.
Please contact LARCG to assist with your certification needs in Uruguay.
