  • Devices used close to body - – IEC62209-2 using Body Liquid limits of 1.6W/kg with 1g

3) Technical specifications

  • 3GPP TS, EN 301511 and EN301908 Mainly references IEC, EN, 3GPP TS and FCC(TBD)

Manufacturers must make note of number of Samples that will be required for all of the required testing. As the Cabs may not be a one stop shop for ALL testing, Safety, ENI / ENC, Radio, SAR, Security, etc

  • The TEC Certificate is valid for 5 years after which renewal is required
  • The products have to labelled with the TEC mark. No Certification number on Product-TBD. E-Labelling is still under consideration
  • But the final Packaging must be labelled with certification number and/or QR code
  • A reliable Certification Partner with knowledge of ALL testing requirements is very vital for TEC certification, covering All aspects of TEC. you can certainly count on C-PRAV
