Type Approval for Chile

Type approvals in Chile are regulated by SUBTEL, Subsecretería de Telecomunicaciones. Approvals of Radio equipment are based on American (FCC) standards or European (EU) standards for smooth market access. We work directly with SUBTEL in Santiago de Chile, whereby certificates of conformity can be obtained in the shortest possible time. The homologation process in Chile requires neither local laboratory tests nor contact with local representatives.
The certificates have an unlimited validity period, which minimizes the manufacturer's effort to obtain a certificate of conformity. There are also no additional product labeling requirements. If you have any questions about the conformity requirements in South America, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our competent and trained team will be happy to assist you with product certification and applicable standards.
