Chile has well defined mandatory certification schemes for electronic and electric products, as wel for radio and telecom interfaces.
SICAL electrical safety approval
Safety approval usually applies for electric equipment over 50V AC or DC or in case the equipment is directly connected to the 220 V AC (50Hz) mains. Power cords also require safety approval. To give an example, regular AC-DC power adapters (including power cords and plugs) must be certified, however the equipment supplied with this DC voltage (e.g. 12 V DC) from the power adapter does not. Local testing can be avoided when applying CB test reports, and may expedite the approval process significantly. Certificates can be issued to a foreign applicant. Certified products shall be marked with the SICAL logo. Depending on the product specification, Teleconformity can make a correct judgement of what needs to be done.
SUBTEL radio and telecom approval
SUBTEL approval is required for equipment with radio and or telecom interfaces.
Testing for SUBTEL ruirements can be conducted outside of Chile. Approval certificates can be issued to a foreign applicant. Approved equipment shall be marked with the SUBTEL approval number. Depending on the product specification, Teleconformity can make a correct judgement of what needs to be done.
