New Labelling Requirements for Cell Phones
Chile’s Telecommunication Authority SUBTEL published on 2016-06-16 the Resolution 1463 about new labelling requirements for cellphone devices, applicable within 270 days, stating that:
- Prior to import and sale in Chile, manufacturers will have to display a multi-band stamp on the packaging of devices containing 2G, 3G or 4G technology, indicating the cellular technologies supported, for both existing and new devices;
- It will be mandatory for cell-phone devices to operate in all permitted frequency bands of at least one supported cellular technology (2G, 3G or 4G);
- Cellular-only devices are still exempt of Radio Type Approval, but devices containing technologies such as BT, WLAN and RFID do require homologation.
