SAMPLE TRACEABILITY:

  • The applicant must inform the OCD, prior to the start of the tests, how the manufacturing unit tracks its production per unit produced. This traceability can occur, for example, through: serial number, batch number, date of manufacture, etc.
  • The OCD must check the declared information with what is in the sample sent to the laboratory, or on the packaging, or in an equivalent process that allows the OCD to proceed with the comparison of data.

SAMPLE IDENTIFICATION:

Provisional presentation of product identification and traceability (such as a label) is allowed in the initial certification application.

IMPORTANT: Provisional identification is only allowed in the Initial Certification, being necessary to present the product photos with the definitive identification in the certificate maintenance.

PHOTOS OF THE PRODUCT WITH GRADUATED RULER:

  • The photos of products with a graduated ruler apply to those with dimensions of up to 30 cm, except when it is a product that is difficult to handle due to its weight, for example, as in the case of “Energy Accumulators” (Batteries).

PHOTOS OF ACCESSORIES:

  • External photos of all accessories that were part of the testing of the product being certified and that will be sold with that product must be filed in Anatel’s computerized system.
