Brazil ANATEL - Public Consultation on The Update of Act 3481

November, 2021

The National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) released the public consultation on the update of Act 3481 (Technical requirements and test procedures for the conformity assessment of chargers used in mobile phones).

The key features and amendments of Act 3481:

  • Vehicular chargers – ESD testing must be done according to ISO 10605/2008, not IEC 61000-4-2 as previously stated.

  • Mint label for vehicular chargers installed inside the car panel will be voluntary. Alternatively, the manufacturer can omit the mint label and label the charger with ANATEL ID instead.

  • For proof of compliance with the requirements of immunity to surges and immunity to electrostatic discharges, exclusively for vehicular chargers of the USB interface type embedded in the dashboard or in another part of the vehicle, test reports issued by an accredited first or second party laboratory will be accepted or authorized by an OCD to perform tests in accordance with the requirements defined by ANATEL. The test report, which must be analyzed by the OCD, must contain specific tests for evaluating the charger and not the vehicle's electrical system as a whole.

Comments can be submitted until November 7, 2021.
