Peru starts register of mobile phone equipment

Tuesday 20 October 2020 | 12:17 CET | News
Peruvian telecom services regulator Osiptel said it is requiring all retailers, importers, assemblers or manufacturers of mobile phone equipment to register the equipment marketed in the country with a view to preventing illegal activity, above all the use of devices to carry out crimes. Entities have been given just 10 days to register the equipment via the corresponding international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) number using a web application set up by Osiptel called SICART.
