Regulatory Update: India TEC outlines MTCTE criteria for equipment with specialized test requirements

On 18th April 2023, the India Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) published a notification outlining test requirements for provisional certificates under MTCTE for Routers, LAN Switches, and DWDM equipment.

Applicants must submit test reports from ILAC accredited labs (not from border sharing nations) for EMI/EMC and Safety parameters, and an SDoC by the OEM must be provided for technical parameters. The parameters will be treated as exempted for these products and a provisional certificate valid for two years may be issued. Applicants are also required to share specifications of voltage, current, and power requirements along with the application.

When security requirements (ITSARs) are notified, applicants must apply to convert the provisional certificate to an integrated MTCTE certificate that includes security testing. MTCTE applications for router products with security testing will be accepted from 1st July 2023.
