TEC Certification For Telecom Products

TEC (Telecommunication Engineering Centre) is a certification body in India that provides certification for telecom products. The certification is mandatory for telecom equipment that is intended to be sold or used in India. The TEC certification process ensures that telecom products meet the technical and safety requirements as per the Indian regulations.

The TEC certification process involves testing the product in accordance with the technical specifications and requirements specified by the Indian government. The certification process also includes an evaluation of the product's safety features and compliance with environmental standards.

The certification is issued by TEC based on the successful completion of the testing and evaluation process. The TEC certificate indicates that the product meets the technical and safety requirements and is compliant with the Indian regulations.

The TEC certification is required for various telecom products, including mobile phones, modems, routers, and other telecom equipment. The certification is also required for products that use wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

To obtain TEC certification for telecom products in India, manufacturers need to submit their products for testing and evaluation to a TEC accredited testing laboratory. The laboratory conducts the necessary tests and submits the results to TEC for certification.
