Learn From These Mistakes Before You Complete TEC Certificate- Corpseedby Khushi Tayal Digital Marketer
TEC is the Telecommunication Engineering Center below the Department of Telecommunications. TEC certification has been a deliberate process since 1991, and as per TEC announcement, No. 10-1/2017-IT/TEC/ER is slated to become compulsory in 2019 for products such as servers, LAN switches, routers, remote access servers, network security systems, etc. being sold into India market. Products below TEC are needed to meet electromagnetic compatibility (EMC/EMI), and safety testing is beneath consideration.
The TEC certification method needs testing of samples to be delivered in India and a report generated from an authorized TEC lab. The report produced by the accredited lab must be presented to TEC for review and approval. This responsibility must be managed by the company’s Authorized Indian Representative (AIR). Upon receiving, TEC will issue a certificate and an ID number connected with the factory manufacturing the product. The ID number assigned by TEC must be marked on the product.
An important distinction to be formed between the TEC approval process and other international approval processes, including BIS and WPC, is that TEC only supports up to 10 models per certificate. Candidates should be careful of this control when preparing for TEC certification.
The TEC certificate and ID numbers are assigned to the company that produces the product instead of the candidate or brand owner appealing for approval. An Authorized Indian Representative (AIR) must be authorized in India for TEC registration. If the candidate or industry has a representative office in India, this office needs to take the responsibility of AIR. If there is no present representation in India, the different legal entities within India can be nominated as the AIR.
Occupying TEC certification can be difficult, and delays can transpire without proper knowledge of certification demands. Some following areas that can add cost or time to projects:
- Deciding whether products need mandatory TEC certification
- Test samples are limited in shipping or get stuck in routines
- Family model programs are defined by the test lab to expect various certification reports
- Various models want additional certificates, which adds unnecessary cost.
- Produce defect or fail during testing
- Test units are not sent with the individual test setup
- Certificate or rules expire

Any Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)/ importer/ trader who wants to sell or import any telecom devices in India, shall have to receive a Certificate from Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) and mark or attach the equipment with proper Certification label.Applications for those products will be trusted on MTCTE portal from 25-June-2020 onwards. However, for sale of this equipment, the necessity becomes compulsory from 01-October-2020 which finally, means that no imports or new products produced since 01-October-2020 are permitted unless it is certified by TEC under MTCTE.
