The marketing approval in Argentina is regulated by the local authority ENACOM. It is based on FCC certification and specific national requirements. To obtain approval in Argentina, the involvement of a local representative is just as necessary as local testing on site.
After the successful certification, the product approval is valid for a total of three years
and the products must bear the ENACOM label in order to be marketed in Argentina.

ENACOM released resolution 2097/2023, where they inform that devices using 5G NR are now allowed to be approved in Argentina.
This took effect on date of publication on the Official Bulletin, which was on December 7th, 2023.
There is a 90 days period, where existing or new applications using foreign test reports are able to comply with v17.1 and the new v23.1.
In general, the standards are the same, except for the addition of Chapter V and the test methods for 3GPP.
The date where only version 23.1 will be accepted is March 6th, 2024.
