Brazil – Pre-issued homologation codes now have an expiry date

Anatel have announced that homologation codes that are pre-issued before the completion of the homologation process will have an expiry date.



  • Homologation codes issued in the new SCH system will expire after 120 days, if the process is not completed. Manufacturers of products that are expected to take a long time (long test campaigns) are expected to take account of the expiry time, i.e. delay the application process for homologation code until testing can be completed in time.
  • Homologation codes issues by the old system (SGCH) are valid until March 31, 2017. In exceptional cases this might be extended until April 30, 2017.
