Market access in Bolivia is based on an ATT certification
For manufacturers of radio technology products, a certification by the Bolivian Authority ATT (Autoridad de Regulación y Fiscalización de Telecomunicaciones y Transportes) is equivalent to a market approval in Bolivia.
The test scope for the ATT approval is based on the specifications for a CE and an FCC approval, so that test reports and certificates, which were issued for the approvals for the USA and the European Union, can be reused. Local tests in a laboratory in Bolivia are not necessary. For the approval process, which must be carried out by a local contact person, an approval period of six to eight weeks should be scheduled.
After the official certification of the device by the ATT, the approval is valid for five years, so that even with no change to the device also a re-certification must be sought. The Bolivian Authority does not award and require its own certification label. The display of a CE mark or an FCC label is sufficient for the market launch in Bolivia.
We as CETECOM offer our customers all the services required for approval in the Bolivian market. As an ISO 17025 and FCC accredited laboratory, we can conduct CE and FCC testing in our laboratories for an ATT certification.
