Telecoms Certification in Australia

EMC Technologies is proud to announce that it has achieved NATA ISO 17020 accreditation for the assessment of ACMA compliance of products connecting to the mobile phone and cellular network.  EMC Technologies can now issue NATA endorsed reports showing compliance of GSM, 3G, 4G devices and Satellite phones with the applicable mandatory standards: AS/CA S042.1, AS/ACIF S042.3 and AS/CA S042.4.

  A NATA endorsed report gives a high level of confidence of compliance with the complex regulatory requirements in the mobile telecommunications sector.

 Background

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) requires that devices connecting to the mobile phone network must comply with the applicable mandatory standards specified within the ACMA Telecommunications (Labelling Notice for Customer Equipment and Customer Cabling) Instrument 2015; known as the TLN.

The TLN prescribes a range of mandatory standards including standards for devices that connect to the mobile phone and cellular network.  The applicable mandatory standard is:

Telecommunications Technical Standard (Requirements for Connection to an Air Interface of a Telecommunications Network – AS/CA S042) 2015.

Depending on whether the device is a 2G, 3G or 4G device or a Satellite phone, AS/CA S042-2015 requires compliance with:

AS/CA S042.1   Australian Standard AS/CA S042.1: – Requirements for connection to an air interface of a Telecommunications Network – Part 1: General

AS/ACIF S042.3: – Requirements for connection to an air interface of a Telecommunications Network – Part 3: GSM Customer Equipment  (Note that the GSM network is now obsolete in Australia)

AS/CA S042.4: – Requirements for connection to an air interface of a Telecommunications Network – Part 4: IMT-2000 Customer Equipment

The mandatory standards above apply to devices such as mobile phones, cellular devices, satellite phones and any device that connects to the Cellular network.

This NATA accreditation for S042 complements EMC Technologies’ extensive NATA accreditations for EMC, EMR, SAR and Safety. The only such facility in Australia that provides all this under one roof.

To legally use or sell  devices that access the mobile phone network in Australia, they must comply with:

  • AS/CA S042.1 Requirements for connection to an air interface of a telecommunications network – Part 1: General
  • AS/ACIF S042.3 Requirements for connection to an air interface of a telecommunications network – Part 3: GSM  (Now obsolete in Australia)
  • AS/CA S042.4 Requirements for connection to an air interface of a telecommunications network – Part 4: IMT-2000 Customer Equipment
  • Compliance with these standards is mandatory for all devices that connect to the mobile phone network, and use voice or data.
  • GSM (2G) and GPRS devices must comply with AS/CA S042.1 and AS/ACIF S042.3.  (GSM ow obsolete in Australia)
  • WBCDMA (3G) and LTE (4G) devices must comply with AS/CA S042.1 and AS/CA S042.4.
  • Satellite Phones must comply with AS/CA S042.1.

ACMA compliance of handsets and modems connecting to the mobile phone network can be fraught with difficulties. EMC technologies staff can advise and guide you on the reports, documents and the administrative steps required for compliance.
EMC Technologies can assess the relevant documentation and if found satisfactory, a Certification Body Statement (Certificate) is issued indicating compliance with the relevant telecommunications regulations. After the compliance label (RCM) is applied and certain other reports and documents have been prepared, the product can be legally sold.
