SRRC certification – analogous to CCC certification – is issued by the State Radio Monitoring and Testing Center (SRRC). SRRC certification is relevant for all products that use a radio transmitter in any form.
The SRRC label is primarily a word mark and represents the CMIIT ID that the manufacturer receives from the agency as part of the approval process. Here it is important to note that without a CMIIT ID, no product may be imported into China and distributed there.
Only after a successful SRRC certification can an application for NAL certification be made,
since the test results of an SRRC certification are the basis for NAL certification.
Products requiring SRRC certification include cell phones (GSM or CDMA),
wireless LAN (WLAN) devices, and devices using the following technologies:
In the case of SRRC certification, it should be noted that the government agency verifies the frequencies selected for the product, so the manufacturer is required to correctly specify the frequencies used by the device. Therefore, in order to obtain approval, the transmit power, bandwidth and scattered radiation must meet the requirements of the selected frequencies. In addition, some frequencies are not publicly available in China and this restriction must also be taken into account by manufacturers.
|Lead time||10 to 12 weeks|
|Local tests required||Yes|
|Local representative required||No|
|Approval label required||Yes|
In summary, it can therefore be said that manufacturers have to cope with different certification scenarios based on their products and the technologies used there. Here it is advisable to rely on an experienced partner who can already provide support in identifying the necessary certification regimes and the relevant scope of testing.
