On Nov 7th ANATEL sent an official letter to OCDs with clarifications about EMC Test Procedures on Restricted Radiation Transceivers from Act 6.506/2018.

This means that only safety testing will be required for Category I and Category II devices installed in an end-user environment and radiated EMC will not be required in the renewal anymore (same way as done before Act 6506/2018).

2.
