In the middle of June 2020, the Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) of India revised the office memorandum TEC/10/2018-NC (Pt. III) on the procedure for Mandatory Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipment (MTCTE) again. Now the amendments concern the labeling requirements.
We kindly remind you that to get the TEC certificate the Mandatory Testing & Certification of Telecommunication Equipment (MTCTE) in India requires testing to be carried out by TEC accredited labs. Once the TEC certificate is received, the label according to the national Indian requirements must be affixed on the product. These requirements are governed by the Indian Telegraph (Amendment) Rules.
However, with the newly appeared amendments, the TEC loosen up the requirements for labeling on certified products within the MTCTE procedure. Thus, the national labeling requirements can be exempted for the initial period of six months. This period starts from the date of testing the product within the certification procedure.
