Type Approval for Guatemala

All Regions » North America » Guatemala
Type approvals in Guatemala are regimented by SIT, Superintendencia de Telecomunicaciones. Approvals of Radio equipment are based on American (FCC) standards or European (EU) standards for smooth market access. IB-Lenhardt AG cooperates directly with SIT in Guatemala City, whereby certificates of conformity can be obtained in the shortest possible time. The homologation process in Guatemala does not require local laboratory testing or contact with local representatives. The certificates have an unlimited validity period, which minimises the effort required by the manufacturer to obtain a certificate of conformity. There are also no additional product labelling requirements. If you have any questions about the conformity requirements in Central 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.
