MTC in Peru is now enforcing the requirement to obtain updated approvals for cellular products with IMEI numbers previously approved by MTC without consideration of the GSMA registration and TAC. The updated approval must include the GSMA registration as a mandatory requirement, and each TAC requires separate MTC approval
All products using cellular technologies that operate above 2.2 GHz (with an output power greater than 50mW) require SAR reports and a GSMA TAC letter as of April 2020.
Peru regulatory agency Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones (MTC) recently released a new Supreme Decree SN 019-2019-MTC.
This new Decree modifies the Type Approval requirements for cellular terminals.
These requirements are only applicable to consumer smart phone devices. The chief modification requires all smart phone devices entering Peru to have Cell Broadcast Service (CBS) enabled to receive warnings from
The National Emergency Alert Early Messaging System (SISMATE).
Companies interested in type approval or homologation of their products in Peru that may fall under this new Decree should contact CSIA for more details.
As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contactCSIA for up to date information.
CSIA can also provide supporting services should your company not be able to meet country specific requirements such as a local representative, local certificate holder, translating documents into the native language, etc. Contact CSIA at (503) 489 8006 or firstname.lastname@example.org for all your FCC certification, CE certification, Industry Canada and International Approval needs.
