The Colombian authority, CRC (la Comisión de Regulación de Comunicaciones) published the regulation 5586, dated January 10, 2019.

The new regulation eliminated the type approval for fixed terminal equipment and satellite telephone equipment. For mobile (WWAN) terminal devices with voice function, type approval is still required. However, for mobile (WWAN) terminal devices with data-transmit-only function (non-voice), type approval is not required until the CRC publishes the result of the regulatory project "Revision of the homologation regime of terminal equipment".

Colombia CRC Enforces Mobile Registration


Starting March of 2013, Colombia CRC (Comision de Regulacion de Comunicaciones ) will start to track IMEI number of the cell phones. This anti- theft function could effectively protect users from unauthorized use. Users are required to register their phone number and IMEI number online to make sure the phone owner’s information match with the phone user. Any users that do not comply by the deadline face having their phone blocked and ceasing to function if they change the SIM card.
