EQUIPMENT TYPE APPROVAL (ETA)
WIRELESS PLANNING AND COORDINATION WING (WPC APPROVALS)

WPC mandates Equipment Type approval for wireless devices to be marketed in India (Applicable for both imported and local) which operate in the de-licensed bands of frequencies. Presently it is a 'Self Declaration Scheme' for ETA. The customer who wishes to obtain ETA for devices with radio, needs to provide the following:

 

  • An RF Test report per either FCC or ETSI for Product with Radio which shows the RF  test results

  • The test report shall cover minimum of the following tests (depends on product)

  • Peak power

  • Out of band emissions

  • Power spectral density

  • Frequency range and

  • Occupied bandwidth

  • The testing must have been conducted in a ISO/IEC 17025 accredited Laboratory

  • Need the test laboratory's accreditation certificate copy or Accreditation Number

  • The measured values MUST be within the limits specified by WPC for the frequency bands. If not, the out of limit values must be restricted through hardware/software/embedded programming and then tested again to show compliance to be within the limits.

  • Technical Brochure (If the technical information is not covered in user manual)

 

The process of obtaining the WPC certification will be anywhere between 1 day to 7 days (however depends on holidays, festivals and load at WPC)
