Compliance & Product Regulatory ApproVals

Anatel announced new act 13011 for mobile phone chargers  

  • On September 1, 2023, the Agência Nacional de Telecomunicaçes (ANATEL) in Brazil released Act 13011. 
  • This new law postponed Act 5159’s implementation date, giving charger manufacturers more time to comply with its criteria. 
  • Manufacturers were most concerned about the new mechanical testing done to the power connector that connects to the electrical AC mains socket. 
  • As a result, until April 14th, 2024, charger makers will be allowed to choose whether to approve their charger under Act 3481/2019 (Old Act) or Act 5159/2022 (New Act). 
  • However, on April 14, 2023, Act N°5159 will become mandatory; in the meanwhile, Act N°3481 will be repealed. 
  • Act 13011 became effective on September 4, 2023.
