Vietnam - New Rules for Wireless Devices

Posted on February 3rd 2020

斗地主达人Effective on February 14, 2017, Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) newly released Circular 46/2016/TT-BTTTT came into effect。  Please see below for important changes found in the new Circular:

  1. Output power limit for WLAN products operating in 2400 – 2483.5 MHz is increased from 100 mW to 200 mW.
  2. For UHF RFID, the band 920-925 MHz is changed to 918-923 MHz.*
  3. Wireless charging technology is permitted on the following frequency bands: 9 - 148.5 kHz, 326.5 kHz, 340 kHz, 6.765 - 6.795 MHz.
  4. 924-925 MHz is no longer available for Cordless Telephones.
  5. A new band of 4200-4800 MHz is allocated to ultra-wide band devices.
  6. New bands are allocated to frequency alerting and detecting devices.
  7. New bands are allocated to wireless audio devices for hearing assistance.
  8. New bands are allocated to Equipment Automatic Identification (AIS).
  9. New bands are allocated to Automatic identification equipment development report for search and rescue (AIS-SART).

All RFID products currently approved for and using the band 920-925 MHz are allowed to be continuously imported, distributed and used in Vietnam until the expiration dates of their respective Type Approval certificates.  There is no impact on existing Type Approval certificates issued based on current Circular 03. For new applications, Type Approval certificates will be granted based on the Circular 46.

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.

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.

Mexico - New Logo Standard

Posted on February 3rd 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。

UAE - Updated UWB and SRD Regulations

Posted on February 3rd 2020

UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) updated Ultra-Wide Band and Short Range Devices requirements in recently published Regulation (Version 2。0) as a written summary of already established requirements。  These requirements are in line with existing European Standards and requirements in ITU-Region 1 countries for these technologies and do not elicit any changes。  See below for the main requirements of UWB devices:

  •         Generic UWB devices shall comply with EN 302 065-1。
  •         UWB devices for location tracking shall comply with EN 302 500-1.
  •         UWB devices for Building Material Analysis shall comply with EN 302 435-1。

Taiwan - Updated Approval Process

Posted on February 3rd 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).
