For Telecom Products
Modifying a certificate for certified telecommunications equipment can be necessary under certain circumstances. Such modifications can either be made without re-testing or may require re-testing, depending on the nature of the changes and their impact on the equipment's compliance. Here's a breakdown of certificate modification in these two categories:
Modifications to certified equipment that do not affect compliance with approved Essential Requirements will be accepted without re-testing, provided the equipment remains in satisfactory working condition. Here are some examples of such modifications:
Any other modifications to the certified equipment that affect its compliance with approved Special Requirements will require the issuance of a new certificate. Here are some examples (not limited to those listed below) of such changes:
Changes in software, whether major revisions, minor revisions, patches, bug fixes or updates, do not inherently necessitate a certificate modification unless they result in non-compliance with Essential Requirements to which the equipment had previously adhered. The OEM is responsible for determining this and applying for certificate modification if required.
