ENACOM publishes resolution no. 1132/2023

On August 18, 2023, the telecom regulator in Argentina, ENACOM, published Resolution #1132/2023 in the Official Gazette, which introduces technical standard Q2-63.02 V23.1 for testing broadband equipment with digital modulation (e.g. Wi-Fi, BLE, ZigBee, etc.), and technical standard Q2-63.03 V23.1 for testing equipment with frequency hopping (e.g. BT, proprietary FHSS, etc.). These standards were put into in force with immediate effect.

Important novelties derived from this Resolution are:

  1. Wi-Fi6e technology is recognized in the 5.925 – 7.125 MHz band, which means equipment with this interface can now be certified
  2. It is essential to know antenna gain of each device as part of the needed technical information. For Modular Certification, this requirement is exempted.


These changes do not apply to devices with Wi-Fi6e that have already been registered under the previously applicable rules, nor to those whose approval process is still underway. The new rules are important when renewing certificates for products that include the Wi-Fi6e function and must undergo and pass appropriate laboratory tests.

The new rules will coexist with the previous ones for 90 calendar days, so you as a customer can currently decide whether to use the old or the new standard. As of November 18, 2023, laboratories may only measure DUTs according to the new technical standards.

Consequently, as of November 18 2023, certificates of interfaces that were originally tested according to the previous standard (Wi-Fi, BT, BLE, LoRa, ZigBee, etc.) and that require re-evaluation according to the new standards must be renewed.

In the following cases, only documentary testing will be performed until further notice:

  • Renewals of low power (or short range) interfaces measured in radiated mode
  • Renewals of interfaces certified using test reports from foreign laboratories (e.g., 2G/3G/4G interfaces)
  • Renewals of interfaces certified using declarations of conformity (e.g. radar; satellite earth stations, etc.) instead of test reports from local laboratories.
