    Extended recognition for wireless telecom testing in India

    Telecom products to be marketed in India must have certification by the Indian governmental Telecommunications Engineering Centre, TEC (a part of the Department of Telecommunication) according to their program denoted MTCTE (Mandatory Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipment). The necessary testing must be performed by Indian laboratory designated by TEC.

    When the program was launched in 2019, the scope was limited to wired equipment, and it has since been expanded to wireless equipment.


    Nemko India was early last year designated as a ‘CAB’ by TEC to perform safety testing of the products. Now, the designation has been extended to cover also testing of EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility), RF (Radio Frequency) and Environmental parameters for products within the full scope of the MTCTE program whereby Nemko India can from 1 January this year offer most of the required testing for telecom products which need certification by TEC for accessing the Indian market. The TEC designation certificates for Nemko India can be seen here.
