Main specific measures include:

① Adjustment of the telecom equipment catalog: The MIIT will no longer accept and approve new network access license applications for 35 types of telecom equipment, including fixed-line telephone terminals, cordless telephone terminals, group phones, fax machines, modems (including cards), wireless pagers, ISDN terminals, multimedia terminals accessing mobile communication networks, frame relay switches, ATM switches, call center equipment, etc. Satellite Internet equipment and function virtualization equipment will be included in the network access license management.

② Streamlining and optimizing testing items. Smaller testing items such as mobile phone environmental adaptability, power supply reliability, etc., which are related to telecommunications security and interconnection in the pre-testing link have been cancelled. Update the test standards for network access certification in a timely manner, and dynamically adjust the technical specifications for network access testing. Qualified testing institutions should carry out network access testing activities in strict accordance with relevant telecommunication standards and technical specifications, and reduce the charging standards accordingly according to the verification and reduction of testing items.

③ Announced that will shorten the time for certification approval, and promises to complete the review within 15 working days from the date of acceptance and make a decision of approval or disapproval.

④ The validity period of the network trial approval document has been uniformly adjusted to 2 years.

⑤ Implement family management of telecommunication equipment products. For telecommunications equipment that has obtained a network access license, if need to add a licensed holder, change an entrusted manufacturer (ie OEM), or make technical and appearance changes that will not impact to the main functions and core components, the licensed holder could fill in the relevant information through the online government service platform of our Ministry in a timely manner, without re-conducting network access testing or applying for network access permits. In case of any change in the contents of the network access permit, the license holder shall go through the formalities for changing the permit information in accordance with the regulations.

2.    On December 29, 2022, the compulsory national standard GB 21288-2022 "Exposure Limits of Electromagnetic Radiation for Mobile Communication Terminals" was officially released. This standard will be implemented on January 1, 2024, replacing the standard GB 21288-2007.

We have extensive experiences and a professional team to assist with CCC, SRRC, and CTA certifications in China. For more information, please contact the BTL IA Department.
