Since 2016-01-20, it is possible to apply for a voluntary Dispensation Note for Low Power Devices issued by Guatemala`s Superintendencia de Telecommunicaciones. This Dispensation Note states that no type approval will be necessary for a specific device prior to import or sale in Guatemala. Previously, no approval document was issued but devices were required to have either FCC or CE approval (or both).

Safety Information for Guatemala
The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly. Type B plugs are rated at 15 amps.
