Originally, Colombia regulator, CRC (Comision de Regulacion de Comunicaciones) has requested mobile phones, satellite devices and PSTN devices to apply type approval and Homologation. But, equipment which sends data only via the cellular network is exempted from this requirement.   Now, Authority is going to change the existing regulations in 2016

Effective this year, all terminal equipment that operates in mobile bands and transmits data will be required to obtain type approval and Homologation also. The amendment to the resolution will impact designated product which will be sold or have been put in Colombia market.

UL Solution: UL Taiwan GMA would watch over this change and make capability to deliver service after Authority announce officially.

Hybrid products are those whose primary functions are not for communication but are integrated with communication modules such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, GSM, 3G and 4G for connection to a public communication network or for radio communication utilising the frequency band up to 420THz.
