“That said, it is already possible to import the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models, considering that they are already approved, so Customs should no longer question their entry into the country,” Angelita Ruiz maintains.

In accordance with numeral 2 of article 88 of the Telecommunications Law the import, manufacture, distribution and sale of equipment, terminals or devices (such as cellular equipment) that do not have approval certificates, constitutes a serious offense subject to a fine of between 10 and 30 UIT, says the expert.

At the level of the General Customs Law, it has been identified that, in accordance with numeral b) of article 165 of said law, said entity, in exercise of customs authority, may order the execution of control actions, before and during the dispatch of the merchandise, after its release or before its departure from the customs territory, such as, among others, ordering the preventive measures of immobilization and seizure of merchandise.

That said, that would be the justification adopted, due to the lack of homologation of the equipment, for which Customs had the power to carry out the corresponding retention of the iPhone 14.
