TEC certification for telecommunication products is provided as a mandatory test certification according to the MTCTE (Mandatory Testing Certification of Telecommunication Equipment) regulations.
TEC Certification has been around many years before 2019 as a voluntary certification, but since April 2019 the certification has been mandatory and every year the Telecommunication Engineering Center (TEC) expands the certification catalog and adds more telecom products. See the list of TEC standards here.
