On August 8, 2016, Russia’s State Committee on Radiofrequencies (GKRCH) published new guidelines for RFC (Radio Frequency Centre) conclusions。 RFC conclusions are required for obtaining import licenses for radio devices such as RFID (866-868 MHz) SRDs, automotive radars (76-77 GHz), DECT devices (1880-1900 MHz) and more。

In the past, GKRCH reports issued by an accredited lab were accepted, and obtaining the RFC conclusion was a paperwork process only. The new guidelines imply that only test reports issued by Russia’s RFC will be accepted, and in-country testing is therefore required.

Recently, Kenya’s Communications Authority issued a new regulation regarding the use of Short Range Devices (SRDs); SRDs operating in the permitted frequency bands are now exempt from Type Approval and may be freely imported and sold in Kenya。 This includes, but is not limited to, SRDs operating at 13。56 MHz, 433-435 MHz, 2。4 GHz and 5 GHz bands such as NFC tag/card readers, keyless car entry systems, wireless access points, wireless LAN modules, etc。 Please note that these SRDs must comply with the maximum permitted output powers specified for each band which currently aligns with the EU regulations。

On August 26, 2016, modifications to the Mexican foreign trade rules and criteria were published in the , regarding all devices approved under the current NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015 and previous NOM-121-SCT12009 standards pertaining to devices operating in the following bands: 2400-2483。5 MHz, 5725-5850 MHz and 902-928 MHz。

斗地主达人The new Mexican foreign trade requirements call for the mandatory presentation of Certificates of Conformity (NYCE certificates) issued under NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015 at Mexican Customs for all devices operating on the frequency bands specified above。 Because of this, there is a risk that any Certificates of Conformity issued under the previous standard (NOM-121-SCT1-2009) will not be accepted by Customs。

In conflict, IFT technical provision IFT-008-2016 states that all Certificates obtained under the previous standard (NOM-121-SCT1-2009) would remain valid with no need to re-certify under NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015。 Because of this confusion, Mexican Secretaria de Economía (SE) issued a notification on August 29, 2016 stating that any Certificates of Conformity or IFT Approval Certificates issued under the previous NOM-121-SCT1 2009 standard must be accepted at Customs and fulfil the requirements stated in the current NOM-EM-016-SCFI-2015。

Manufacturers are encouraged to provide a copy of the SE’s August 29, 2016 notification at Mexican Customs for all devices in order to prove compliance and ensure Customs delays are not incurred due to this confusion.

Per Resolución 755, Chile’s Regulator, Subsecretaría de Telecomunicaciones (SUBTEL), has introduced additional requirements for supplementary test reports issued in cases where the test reports indicate greater output powers than allowed。 In addition to showing compliance to the Chilean limits, manufacturers are encouraged to consider the following requirements in the supplementary test report:

  • For any devices operating in WLAN 5 GHz bands, the supplementary test report must clearly display that the 5500-5700 MHz band will be disabled.
  • The laboratory that tested to the Chilean limits must be clearly identified (name, address, country, contact telephone number) and the report must be issued on the appropriate laboratory letterhead and with their official logo.
  • The supplementary test report issued must clearly display the names and signatures of the persons responsible for carrying out the testing to Chilean limits.
  • If the supplementary test report is issued by a different laboratory than that which issued the main FCC/EU test reports, information must be provided in the supplementary report on the test conditions and support equipment used to carry out the testing to Chilean limits.

Please note that there is a risk that SUBTEL will reject all applications where the supplementary test report does not include all information outlined above, in addition to showing compliance to Chilean limits.

斗地主达人 Mexico - New Logo Standard

Posted on February 28th 2020

Mexico’s Secretaria de Economía (SE Mexico) recently issued the Draft Mexican Official Standard PROY-NOM-106-SCFI-2016. In Mexico, products must be compliant with the Federal Law on Metrology and Standardization to be able to be imported/commercialized products in Mexico. There are two types of standards, Official Mexican Standards (NOM) and voluntary Mexican standards (NMX). The new logo standard will be enforced in the near future.

Proposed new regulation:

  • A change in the dimensions of the letter, “M”, in the NOM logo
  • If a product complies with a voluntary standard, it may now have the NMX logo.
  • If the product complies with both official and voluntary standards, then it suggests the use of two logos, NOM and NMX, instead of just the NOM logo.

On July 14, 2016, Argentina’s regulator, ENACOM (Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones), published Q2-60.14V16.1 for low power devices (superseding prior technical standard Q2-60.14V12.1).

ENACOM has offered a 180 day grace period from the date of publication whereby Q2-60.14V12.1 test reports will continue to be accepted. Once the grace period has ended, reports to the new standard Q2-60.14V16.1 must be submitted for both new and renewal Type Approval applications.

Significant changes in this new technical standard are:

  1. Number of samples required for local testing has been reduced.
    1. Devices transmitting on a single channel on the new standard Q2-60.14V16.1 require one sample.
    2. Devices transmitting on multiple channels on the new standard Q2-60.14V16.1 require one sample as long as the channel can be adjusted in the test SW of a single sample. If not, it is required to provide one sample each for low, middle, and top channels.
  2. Modular Approval is now acceptable and is sufficient for host devices. That is to say, a host device containing an Approved Low Power module does not need its own Type Approval certificate. In the case where Type Approval is being sought for the module, local testing must be carried out on the module itself*.
  3. Under Q2-60.14V16.1, local testing on the low power module can be performed if testing on the host is not possible due to product dimensions.

斗地主达人* Please note that where Modular Approval is being leveraged for host devices, manufacturers must ensure compliance with the technical requirements and field emission limits for the published standard.

On June 13, 2106, Chile’s regulator Subsecretaría de Telecomunicaciones (SUBTEL) released Resolución 1463 that declares that new labelling requirements for cellphone devices must be implemented within 270 days of its publication。  Upon its implementation, devices containing 2G, 3G or 4G technology will be required to display a multi-band stamp on the front of the box/packaging of the device to show the cellular technologies supported。 Examples are:

3G graphic


The manufacturer or the importer will be responsible for adding the multi-band stamp to the device packaging prior to import and sale in Chile and this requirement will affect both existing and new devices。 Cellular-only devices still do not require Type Approval in Chile, however Type Approval is required if the device contains other technologies such as Bluetooth, WLAN and RFID. Upon implementation of this regulation, it will be mandatory for cell-phone devices to operate in all permitted frequency bands of at least one supported cellular technology (2G, 3G or 4G)。 

Taiwan - Updated Approval Process

Posted on February 28th 2020

Effective July 1, 2016, Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC) will allow the following telecommunication terminal devices to follow the existing Type Approval scheme or to follow the Declaration of Conformity (DoC) scheme:

  •          Telephone
  •          Automatic Alarm
  •          Answering Machine
  •          Fax
  •          Typewriter
  •          Wired Remote Commander
  •          Key Telephone System
  •          Computer Integrating Phone Function
  •          Caller ID Terminal Devices

Under the DoC scheme, the process is simplified and costs are expected to be reduced。  Similar to the standard Type Approval scheme, NCC testing and submission to NCC for assessment is still required, however NCC will then release a DoC with the allocated declaration number。  

In comparison to the standard NCC mark, the “z” highlighted in red below for type approval method will be “C” (for DoC scheme) rather than “T” (for Type Approval scheme).
