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.

 

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.

 

The steps of WPC certification

  1. Preparation of application documents
  2. Test in an accredited Indian laboratory
  3. Application at WPC by submitting all documents and test reports
  4. Issuance of the WPC ETA license

 

A factory inspection is currently not necessary.

Altogether, the WPC ETA Approval can be completed within 2 to 3 months.

How long is the WPC certificate valid?

As long as no changes are made to the product after the WPC certification process, the WPC certificate is valid indefinitely.

 

My product is listed in both the BIS and WPC catalogues. Do I need to apply for both?

Depending on the type of product, other certifications may be required, such as BIS Certification for many types of electronic products, TEC Certification for telecommunications equipment, or PESO Certification for explosion-protection equipment. Although the BIS authority is supposed to absorb many of the authorities in the future, until then these certifications are with authorities that are completely independent of each other. This unfortunately means that you may have to go through several certifications at the same time.
