Indonesia’s Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI) recently indicated that a new policy is under consideration whereby paperwork only will be required for Indonesia’s Type Approval process. This new policy is expected to run in parallel with the current Type Approval process in place whereby local testing is conducted. Manufacturers will then have the option to proceed with either the new paperwork-only process or the existing local testing process. This new policy has not yet been published or released, but is expected to come into force in 2017.

Though geared toward the certified bodies (CBs), it is informative to all that seek certification under RSS-210, and is provided below.

This is to inform you the following certification procedure will apply with regards to transition period for RSS-210 issue 9:

  1. If a certificate has been issued to RSS-210 issue 8 before the date of publication of RSS-210 issue 9, nothing needs to be changed and it can be submitted as is to ISED via the Spectraweb application;
  2. If a certificate has not been issued before the date of publication of RSS-210 issue 9, ISED will continue to accept test reports compliant with RSS-210 Issue 8 until February 26, 2017 and in such cases, the CB shall issue certificates showing RSS-210 Issue 8 compliance. After February 26, 2017, CBs shall issue certificates showing RSS-210 Issue 9 compliance and test reports may continue to be in compliance with RSS-210 Issue 8 until August 26, 2017, only if:
    1. it is supplemented with a partial test report covering any missing requirements from RSS-210 Issue 9; or
    2. it includes an attestation signed by the applicant, lab or CB indicating that the report covers all requirements in RSS-210 Issue 9.

Canada - ICES-003 Revised

Posted on February 28th 2020

During June 2016, Canada’s Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) updated ICES-003 — Information Technology Equipment (Including Digital Apparatus) — Limits and Methods of Measurement, to Issue 6. This will come into force upon its publication on the Industry Canada website at www.ic.gc.ca/spectrum. Following its publication, a transition period of three months will be provided, during which compliance with ICES-003 Issue 5 or Issue 6 will be accepted. Only compliance with ICES-003 Issue 6 will be accepted after the transition period.

Changes Include:

  • Clarification of the definition of an ITE device;
  • Inclusion of storage media;
  • Clarification of applicability of broadcasting equipment;
  • Update to reference the latest version of ANSI C63.4-2014;
  • Update to clarify that external thermostats are subject to the requirements of ICES-003.

Note: Industry will have until March 1, 2017 to ensure that these thermostats sold, offered for sale, manufactured, imported, distributed or leased are compliant.

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.

* 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 July 8, 2016, the European Commission published in the Official Journal of the European Union the following updated consolidated list of harmonized standards for the R&TTE Directive (RTTED) 1999/5/EC, Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU and the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) 2014/35/EU。

·        

·        

·        

The R&TTE Directive list of standards will only be used until June 13, 2017。  Currently, there are not many harmonized standards for the RED but it is anticipated that additional harmonized standards for the RED will be updated in the Official Journal over the course of the next year。

Bhutan - New Type Approval Process

Posted on February 28th 2020

Bhutan’s regulatory authority, BICMA, recently implemented type approval certification of information and communications technology (ICT) equipment. International applicants who intend to export their ICT equipment to Bhutan must obtain a type approval certificate for their equipment. Type approved equipment should be affixed with a label as shown below:

lable

Please note that a lot of ICT equipment, e.g. mobile handsets, data modems, RTTE embedded in PC or laptop with output power less than 100mW, is exempted from the type approval certificate.

Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) recently released the National Technical Regulation QCVN 101:2016/TTBTTTT on lithium batteries. These regulations are based on IEC 61960 (06-2011) and IEC 62133 (2012) standards and will come into force on October 1, 2016.

Upon implementation of this rule, all telecommunication products which are subject to mandatory Type Approval requirements and which contain lithium batteries will require additional local testing against QCVN 101:2016/TTBTTT. This requirement applies to both new and renewal Type Approval applications. This regulation does not apply to lithium batteries as standalone devices. Currently, there are no local laboratories in place to test for this new regulation and the implementation date is subject to change.
