WPC Approvals: What You Need to Know
Manufacturers operating within the de-licensed frequency range must obtain a WPC ETA certificate. However, if your product operates within prescribed frequency bands that have license-free status, WPC certification is not required.
How to Obtain ETA Certification?
To obtain the ETA certification, you must submit the application along with a Radio Test report accredited by a certified laboratory. At Certifications Bay, we provide top-notch assistance in filling out the application form and managing the documentation process. We stay in direct contact with the WPC officer or laboratory to ensure that the process is smooth and efficient.
ETA type approval applies to a wide range of products, including mobile phones, Bluetooth devices, WiFi technology, RFID, and more.
To Exhibit Wireless Equipment, Acquire a Demonstration License
In order to display wireless equipment, you must obtain a demonstration license, which is a non-network type license. However, it is crucial to demonstrate the wireless equipment only on specific frequencies and emissions.
Please note that to obtain a demonstration license, you must possess a valid Dealer Possession License (DPL). If you do not possess a DPL, you must apply for one before obtaining a demonstration license.
Obtaining an experimental license is necessary for conducting experiments related to wireless equipment. This license is used for experimental purposes only and does not allow commercial use of the equipment.
It is essential to follow the specified frequency range and emission standards while conducting experiments. Additionally, obtaining a valid Dealer Possession License (DPL) is mandatory to apply for an experimental license.
The company seeking to offer internet services in India must obtain an ISP license. The ISP license is categorized into three types based on the range and area of coverage:
- Category A: This license permits the provision of services across the entire country.
- Category B: This category includes 20 Territorial Telecom Circles, along with four metro cities – Ahmedabad, Pune, Hyderabad, and Bangalore.
- Category C: This category encompasses the Secondary Switching Areas (SSA) defined by the Department of Telecommunications (DOT).
The DPL license is granted to wireless product dealers and distributors, with the aim of preventing unauthorized possession, sale, and transfer of wireless devices or counterfeit equipment to entities lacking valid licenses.
Obtaining the DPL license can be a challenging process. However, Certifications Bay has a team of experienced professionals who can assist you in acquiring the license.
The NDPL (Non-Dealer Possession License) is a license that is issued to individuals and firms who are not dealers and do not possess any WPC license but still wish to hold wireless products under their custody. It is essentially the opposite of the DPL license (Dealer Possession License).
