- Products exempted from certification scope due to overlap .
The Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC), which is a part of India Ministry of Communications, has now decided to exempt the following products from the scope of MTCTE (Mandatory Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipment): Mobile phones, Servers, Smart watches, Smart camera and PoS machines (Point of Sale Devices).
These products were already under the scope pf the BIS Compulsory Registration scheme which is regulated by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) prior to being listed or considered to be listed to TEC regulation scope under the Department of Telecom (DOT).
The exemptions on these products, most of which are widely used, will reduce the compliance burden and will enable the industry to roll out their products faster as well as reduce import delays.
