Brazil – New regulation for Mobile Phone Chargers

Anatel has published Act No. 493 of 2017, which introduces certification requirements for mobile phone chargers. The new regulation will specifically cover four types of charger:

  1. Mains powered chargers with a DC wired connection to the mobile
  2. Mains powered inductive (wireless) chargers
  3. Vehicle based wired chargers (from 12V or 24V DC supply)
  4. Vehicle based inductive (wireless) chargers

Labeling of certified chargers is also a requirement, as with batteries used for mobile phones (Resolution 481).
