Share This Post

Two important regulatory mandates postponed for a short period. This was necessary however, the authorities have indicated that this would be the last change in dates. Manufacturers should not procrastinate their readiness any further and it is very critical that they are ready by the new dates.

  1. National Centre for Communication Security (NCCS) has extended the Mandatory dates for accepting the online applications of Wi-Fi CPEs and IP Routers for Security Testing by 3 months. The Effective date for accepting online applications on Integrated MTCTE and NCCS portal is now revised from 01-04-2024 to 01-07-2024. More details of this announcement and what should be the next step for manufacturers along with the notice can be found here 

After 1st July 2024 all WiFi-CPEs and IP Routers are expected to be certified before they are imported or sold in India. The testing itself takes about 3 months so manufacturers must be shipping their samples now to start testing.
