Extension in Mandatory Certification of certain Products in MTCTE

18. April 2024

A new notification by the Department of Telecommunications of the Government of India (published April 1, 2024) announces changes to the testing and certification schedules for certain telecom and networking equipment as part of the MTCTE (Mandatory Testing & Certification Of Telecommunication Equipment) regime’s Phase-III and IV. Telecommunication Equipment and related products require TEC Certification in order to be approved for import and use on the Indian market.

Specifically, the mandatory certification date for 10 out of 44 products is extended by four months, from April 1, 2024, to August 1, 2024, with a detailed list of these products provided here:

The certification date for the other 34 products remains unchanged as per previous notifications.

Additionally, the acceptance deadline for test reports from ILAC-accredited labs in non-border sharing countries is also extended by four months, from March 31, 2024, to July 31, 2024, for the four products listed in the following table. These amendments take effect immediately with the approval of the Competent Authority.

Note: Test reports or results for technical parameters of specified products (ERs), issued by foreign laboratories accredited by ILAC signatories from non-border sharing countries, will be valid for two years from the date they are submitted.
