WPC Certification Process -Currently, the WPC certification process is the simplest of all Indian certifications, but the requirements should not be underestimated. While you can expect to receive the certificates and finish the certification process after only 8 weeks, among other things, you must first prepare documents and reports which may take time. When applying for WPC approval, it is important to declare the specifications of all components of the device, as not all products require subsequent testing. Products that have already installed a WPC approved radio module do not require additional testing of the final product. In this case the product only needs to be registered.

Which documents are required?

By default, company license, AIR (Authorized Indian Representative) information and application documents must be prepared. Up until 2020 it was possible to conduct RF tests abroad and to submit the corresponding test reports. Since the start of 2021 however, foreign RF test reports are not accepted anymore and hence, tests must be done in India. When conducting tests, it is important that the tests are performed separately for each individual product that is going to be certified. This is essential because only one product can be applied to each certificate of the WPC. When applying for WPC approval, it is important to declare the specifications of all components of the device, as not all products require subsequent testing. Products that have already installed a WPC approved radio module do not require additional testing of the final product. In this case the product only needs to be registered.

Approval required for WPC Approval

Agencies required the approval for WPC that they should utilize to secure the license to run within an assigned frequency. All the wireless products will work on some form of the wireless network. Many wireless devices would need to operate on de-licensed frequency bands. A special form of permission would be required for de-licensed frequency bands. The term "ETA" refers to this type of approval (Equipment Type Approval). The clearance for the ETA is given by the Wireless Planning and Coordination (WPC) department. Conclusively, if a product is not approved by the WPC but operates in a de-licensed frequency range, it is an ETA Certificate. Mobile phones, Bluetooth devices, Wi-Fi WPChnologies, and other items are covered by the WPC's Equipment Type Approval (ETA).
