For Telecom Equipments
Groups in TEC are made according to the time and complexity involved in testing the equipment or evaluating test reports. These equipments are divided into three Groups: Group A, Group B and Group C.
Below are the 2 types of Certification Schemes for notified Telecom Equipment:
Under this scheme, applicant has to submit test wise compliance along with test reports, in respect of parameters included in Essential Requirements (ERs), from any designated Conformance Assessment Body (CAB).
