Vietnam - New Rules for Wireless Devices

Posted on February 28th 2020

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 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。

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.

Papua New Guinea’s National Information & Communications Technology Authority (NICTA) has recently launched a public consultation on the following ICT technical standards and specifications:

  1. Technical Guideline for WiMax Technology;
  2. Technical Standards for Operation of V-SAT & Ancillary Equipment;
  3. Type Approval Standards for Wireless Broadband Access Equipment;
  4. Type Approval Standards for Wireless Local Area Network Equipment;
  5. EMC and Safety Requirement for ICT Equipment;
  6. Type Approval Specification for DVB-T2.

These are new standards and specifications, and do not replace any previous versions. The purpose of these technical standards and specifications is to clarify specific requirements for each technology’s type approval, frequency assignments, etc. The public consultation process has been ongoing since January 15, 2016 and a closure date has not yet been confirmed.

Ecuador’s Regulator, Agencia de Regulación y Control de las Telecomunicaciones (ARCOTEL) released Resolución 03-02-ARCOTEL-2016, in which changes to the Ecuadorian National Frequency Allocation Plan have been published. In the updated National Frequency Allocation Plan, ARCOTEL allocated 57-64 GHz for WLAN 802.11ad devices. As such, Type Approval applications can now be filed for devices supporting this technology.

Please contact Rhein Tech if you have any questions regarding this change.

Since January 1, 2016, Belarusian Regulators have been in the process of updating the list of products which are subject to mandatory National Conformity Assessment via a Declaration Scheme, in accordance with Decree #60。 The updated product list may not be in place until June 2016。 During this interim, the National Declaration scheme cannot be followed。 Furthermore, it has been advised that only products that fall under established EA Customs Union (EAC) technical regulations require mandatory confirmation of compliance in Belarus。 Until the list is in place, manufacturers can import products which are approved against the EAC EMC/Safety scheme only (if products fall under these regulations), or manufacturers can apply for a voluntary Certification scheme under the national system of Belarus。 If a voluntary certificate is not obtained in the interim period, it is the manufacturer’ responsibility to ensure a Declaration under the National System is obtained after the new list comes into effect。 Voluntary certification requires annual physical factory inspection and sample testing。 It should be noted that there are no legal obligations to show compliance to RF standards until the new regulation is introduced。

In an official resolution (SIT_047_2016) released January 27, 2016, Guatemala’s Superintendencia de Telecomunicaciones (SIT) began issuing voluntary Dispensation Notes for low power RF devices, effective January 20, 2016. The Dispensation Note is an official document from SIT stating that the equipment does not require any approval prior to import or sale on the Guatemalan market. Previously, SIT did not issue any kind of approval document, and low power RF devices were required to have either FCC and/or CE approval before entering the country.

Chile - Stricter Type Approval Review

Posted on February 28th 2020

The Chilean Regulator, Subsecretaría de Telecomunicaciones (SUBTEL), has introduced stricter requirements in its review of Type Approval applications. As of January 1, 2016, SUBTEL is no longer accepting Frequency Declarations or User Manual statements to show that devices will be restricted to conform to Chilean Regulation Resolución 755. New Type Approval applications with greater output powers than permitted in Chile as stated in Resolución 755 (e.g. the indoor output power limits for the following bands is 150 mW: 2400-2483.5 MHz; 5150-5250 MHz; 5250-5350 MHz and 5725-5850 MHz) will automatically be rejected. Devices already approved are not affected by this change, providing the output power continues to be restricted to conform to the Chilean standards.
