The Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has further extended the deadline for conducting mandatory testing of devices and equipment from the proposed April 1, 2019 to August 1, 2019.

This development follows a series of deliberations held between telecom gear and device manufacturers and TEC. The industry has been demanding more clarity on the rules.

According to The Mobile Association (TMA), the extension would give enough time to mobile brands to address the challenges regarding adequate testing infrastructure, completion of the TEC portal, and finalisation of the criteria for guidelines of mobile phones among others.

As per industry stakeholders, a decent number of laboratories should be opened up before mandating the manufacturers to conduct compulsory testing of equipment and devices.

To this end, the government is planning to increase the number of TEC-designated laboratories in the country from the current 25 to 100, with a view to facilitate implementation of essential testing norms.
