CountryUpdate
USAFCC 22-84 effected from Feb. 6th, 2023, which explained by KDB 986446 D01 Covered Equipment V01. FCC has updated the TCB application requirements under Rule Part 2.911(d) which now requires a local agent or entity for all TCB applications.

Brief of KDB 986446 as below:

I.                 Prohibit the authorization of covered equipment list through the FCC’s certification process, SDoC or imported or marketed to USA.
(covered equipment list will be updated irregular, need to check before submission)

II.                All application needs to provide attestation letters of not covered equipment/applicant.

III.              All application needs to provide local (USA) agent as service of process.
(to maintain impartiality of test laboratory or TCB, none of lab or TCB offer US agent service)

ChinaThe Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of China published an announcement to reform the Network Access License (NAL) System on 6th February 2023.

Here are some updates of this announcement:

•       Removal the 11 types of devices from network access license requirements, including fixed-line telephone, cordless telephone, group phones, fax machine, modem, wireless beepers, ISDN terminals, multimedia terminals with cellular technology, frame relay switches, asynchronous transfer mode switches (ATM switches) and call centre equipment.

•       Adding satellite network devices and function virtualization devices into NAL mandatory list.

•       Simplify and optimize NAL testing items, removing some testing clauses for smartphone.

•       Simplify the procedure of product changes or certificate changes. For these changes have not impact on the main function of product, technologies of critical components, there is no need to apply for a new license.

These measures will take effective on 1st March 2023.

SingaporeOn 27th January 2023, the Consumer Product Safety Office (CPSO) Enterprise Singapore issued a new Circular, informing registered suppliers of process changes for the renewal of the registration of Controlled Goods with Certificates of Conformity (CoCs) issued directly by the CPSO. This impacts Singapore Safety Approvals only.

The main impact of the Circular is summarized as follows:

1.     CPSO will no longer be renewing CoC applications that originally issued by CPSO from 27th June 2023, and suppliers should approach the Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) for renewal of CoCs if CABs have the relevant certification scope. CPSO will only process the CoC renewal if no CABs has the certification scope for the renewal.

2.     The CoC number will remain unchanged, and the registered suppliers are able to continue using the existing Safety Mark numbers if the CoCs issued by CPSO are renewed by a CAB.

IndiaThe clarification regarding Radio conformance, IT safety and EMI/EMC testing of Base Station for Cellular Network as per applicable ER is given below.

i. Radio conformance testing of Radio unit(s) of Base station mentioned on MTCTE application may be done with any Baseband unit(s), and that Baseband unit may or may not be mentioned in the submitted MTCTE application.

ii. IT safety test reports for a number of Radio unit(s) or Baseband unit(s) belonging to a particular series/family may be submitted for safety testing done on a single radio unit operating at a particular frequency ir baseband unit from that family/series, considering that highest power consumption radio unit or baseband unit has been tested.

iii. Test report(s) for EMI/EMC of each Radio unit and Baseband unit mentioned in the MTCTE application shall be submitted.

South KoreaThe scope and quantity of equipment exempted from all conformity assessment in consideration of the impact on the radio wave and broadcasting and communication environment under the Article 18 77-7 (1) remark 6-2 (1) are same as following articles.

Quantity limit: Quantity recognized by the Minister of Science and ICT

 

2. Radio facilities for amateur radio stations that are manufactured, assembled, or brought in for use by themselves, not for sale purposes.

Quantity limit: Quantity recognized by the Minister of Science and ICT

 

3. Computer built-in components that have been evaluated for conformity [Remark 1-11 i 35 ] ( limited to those indicated in Remark 6)

No quantity limitation

 

4. A set of assembly items (including rechargeable batteries) operated by USB or batteries (including rechargeable batteries) of Remark 1-11 c, d, i (but only if the parts for wireless transmission/reception are evaluated for suitability)

No quantity limitation

 

5. Industrial equipment

1. Manufactured for the purpose of being used in a limited space where access can be controlled.

2. Imported for the purpose of being used in a limited space where access can be controlled.

3. It is limited to radio equipment that satisfies 1 and 2 and can follow the conformity registration procedure according to Article 58-2 of the Radio Waves Act, which can manage distribution records.

Quantity limit: Quantity recognized by the Minister of Science and ICT

 

A) The limited space where access is controlled must be a space where entry and exit records can be managed, and only authorized personnel can enter.

B) As for distribution record management, the following information can be traced even after equipment is exempted. Records and supporting data such as exemption approval number, product name, model name, lot number, manufacturing/import status, sales/delivery status, etc.

TaiwanApplicants (such as manufacturers, agents, and distributors) applying for NCC certification of mobile phone should be aware of the relevant provisions of the Personal Data Protection Law when collecting, processing or using personal data on mobile phones, and inform consumers that personal data generated by using mobile phones will be collected, processed or used possibility.
According to the proposal of the Transportation Committee, planning the charging connection interface of mobile phones into USB-Type C in Taiwan. This decision will be carried out according to the implementation time of the resolution of the European Parliament (before the end of 2024), and the consultation with relevant mobile phone manufactures/ importers is currently in progress. For mobile phone manufacturers and importers are also requested to plan and handle relevant response measures as early as possible. (May be extended to all RF regulated devices charged by USB interface)
NCC Conformance Meeting – Conclusion No. 11112502

LPD (low power devices) and its Single Module (components), and restricted end products, should submit antenna specification technical documents or antenna test reports (Antenna Test Report, AUT Report) in accordance with FCC KDB 353028 and FCC TCB Work Shop Part 15 Antenna Update on October 26, 2022.

1.Antenna datasheet needs to indicates following information: name and address of the antenna manufacturer, brand name and model number of the antenna, antenna design type, maximum gain of the operating frequency and antenna patterns (2D or 3D).

2. In addition to the basic antenna information, the antenna report must include the following information: antenna gain, performance specifications, test equipment, test date, tester name, test software information, test setup photos and description of how to perform the measurement.

3. If the material does not include antenna gain, must to explain the reason for “only use radiation measurement to confirm compliance with NCC’s restrictions on main wave field strength and mixed wave emission”.

4. If the inspection regulations require the EIRP limit value, the antenna report must include the antenna pattern (2D or 3D plot) and the test configuration.

5. If the applicant provides antenna specification from antenna manufacturer, it is necessary to confirm whether the relevant characteristics of the antenna will be changed while it been installed on the equipment. If there’s any affection, this specification may not be applicable.
