Vietnam— Draft Regulation Update

Posted on February 28th 2020
Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) has issued several draft regulations to replace the current Circular 05/2014/TT‐BTTTT. This draft is currently in its 3rd revision and possibly additional amendments will be made before the implementation date of October 1, 2017. Currently, the most significant changes are as follows:
2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands will not be considered SRDs. This means these devices which operate under 60mW will still not require Type Approval, and a Letter of No Accreditation (LoNA) can still be obtained.
866‐868 MHz RFID equipment has been added to the SRD list. Per the current procedure, Type Approval is required.
UWB equipment has been added to the SRD list.
60 GHz WiGig equipment have been added to the SRD list.
Testing to one additional standard will be required for GSM devices.
Testing to one additional standard will be required for W‐CDMA FDD devices.
25‐2000 MHz wireless audio equipment has been added to the SRD list.
Lithium batteries used in mobile phones, notebooks and tablets have been added to the list of products subject to Announcement of Standard Conformity (DoC).
NOTE: All Type Approval Certificates already in place will remain valid until their expiration.

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。

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。

斗地主达人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.

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:

Mexico - New Logo Standard

Posted on February 28th 2020

斗地主达人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.

斗地主达人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.

* 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.
