As of May 2, 2013, the Brazilian telecommunications agency ANATEL has announced that the agency will be changing its internal policies, procedures and departments effective immediately. This change will immediately impact all current certificate approvals currently in process by ANATEL.
At this point there is no definitive timeline of when ANATEL will resume approvals of existing certificates. New processes will continue as expected with no delays in testing and issuance of Certificate of Conformities (COC). However, the final homologations by ANATEL will not resume until the agency re-initiates their certification process.
