ENCACOM Allows Approval For 5G NR Devices


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.

Main changes:

  • Allowance of approvals of devices using 5G NR on n78 band: 3300 – 3700 MHz.
  • Update on local technical standard, adding Chapter V for 5G NR.
  • Devices manufactured outside Argentina are allowed to be approved using foreign test reports (FCC, RED, ANATEL, etc) as long as results comply with technical parameters established on local standard ENACOM-Q2-61.03 V23.1. Devices made in Argentina are allowed to be approved submitting a DoC.

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.
