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.
Here is a brief explanation of the most important items from this letter:
1. Change into Renewal Procedure: According to Item 4 of this letter, ANATEL is exempting already approved products from being tested for radiated emissions and RF irradiated immunity in the renewals. 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. RF Radiated Immunity (IEC 61000-4-3) does not need to be applied to each WIFI technology as understood by OCD and Labs before and from now on only needs to be done in the most complex modulation with largest BW/speed for each frequency band. This represents a great reduction in the testing fee for manufacturers. For example, considering WIFI 802.11 b/g/a/n/ac + Bluetooth (EDR+LE) + NFC device;
