The Chinese Ministry of Industry & Information Technology (MIIT) drafted in 2020 new "Regulations on the Administration of Radio Transmission Equipment" which proposed changes to the 2016-version. After feedback from the industry was collected and incorporated, the new version was published as Order No. 57 in December last year, showing 1 July 2023 as the date of implementation.
In addition, on 13 January this year, MIIT published guidance (in Chinese) for the regulations.
Some of the key points/changes are:
- Reducing the time for SRRC type approval review and certificate release to 15 working days.
- Increasing the validity period of type approval (for certain categories) to more than 2 years and less than 5 years.
- Allowing the applicant to self-compile the type of approval code documentation (MIIT ID).
- For domestic manufacturers, providing a system (MIIT No. 314) for ‘self-inspection’ and ‘self-certification.’
- Micro-power short distance devices are no longer exempt from SRRC Type Approval and must now comply with
the technical requirements described in MIIT No. 52.
The user manual shall include the wording: "The use of micro-power short-distance radio transmission equipment.
shall comply with the relevant regulations of the State on Radio Management”.
Also, the devices must be labelled with a special logo. (The regulation for this is expected to be available in
good time before July 1, 2023).
The regulations in full are available at this link.
