Colombia – Homologation of data only cellular devices postponed

The Colombia Telecommunications authority has issued CRC Resolution 5300 of 2018 which provides new information regarding the updates to their project for “Revision of the homologation regime of terminal equipment”.

Originally, under CRC 5050 of 2016, starting February 1st of 2018, all terminal equipment that uses cellular bands would require to be homologated even if the devices are only capable of data transmission.

The new communication postpones the implementation of this change indefinitely while they continue to develop their homologations program.

All devices that use cellular frequencies for data only can continue being certified under the no homologation process.
