IT'IS and BNNSPEAG at SRTC 2018 Engineering Seminar in New Delhi

IT’IS Foundation Director Niels Kuster was an international expert speaker at the Standards Regulations Testing Certifications (SRTC) 2018 Engineering Seminar in New Delhi, India. The two-day seminar-workshop, held 25 – 26 July 2018, featured presentations by representatives of the Indian government to introduce its program for mandatory testing and certification of telecommunications equipment.

Under this program, which comes into effect as of October 1, 2018, all telecommunications devices to be used in India must be tested and certified against India’s Essential Requirements (ER) prior to sale. The testing must be carried out in laboratories accredited in India, and compliance certificates are to be issued by India’s Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC). The detailed procedure for testing is codified in the document Mandatory Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipment (MTCTE).

The seminar, an important event for India’s electronics industry as well as for foreign manufacturers and importers of telecom devices to India, was an unprecedented opportunity to meet with stakeholders in the emerging Indian telecom industry. The local industry and regulatory representatives could learn firsthand from India’s regulatory agencies about all aspects of the new regulations, and the detailed presentations describing the MTCTE help reduce uncertainty regarding regulations for importing devices.

A panel of Deputy Director Generals (DDG) of the TEC were on hand for a keynote presentation on the new regulations, ERs, standards, technical specifications, etc., with a special demonstration of the certification portal. Furthermore, several international experts were invited to describe the latest developments in international standards, testing protocols, and certification processes. In his presentation on July 26, Niels Kuster explained the regulations in North America and the technical solutions for performing certification.

BNNSPEAG, India’s regional representative of IT’IS partner Schmid & Partner Engineering AG (SPEAG), participated in the seminar with an exhibition booth, where live demonstrations of cSAR3D, SPEAG’s multi-sensor system for rapid measurement of specific absorption rate (SAR) were offered. The booth also provided the opportunity for seminar participants to discuss the state-of-the-art test facilities available at BNNSPEAG and to seek advice from BNNSPEAG’s technical experts on the newly formulated MTCTE test protocols.
