India – Updated policy for Equipment Type Approval (Revision)

India has further revised its new policy for Equipment Type Approval (ETA) for certain categories of Wireless Equipment using license exempt bands. ETA is still to be achieved through self-declaration by the importer or authorized Indian representative, however, the WPC wing of the Department of Telecommunications will verify submitted test reports. The self-declaration form itself is to be downloaded from WPC website.

This will now be a one time process and will not need AWB or shipment specific details. This new process is effective from April 16, 2019; use of the previous process is still possible until April 30, 2019.
