Another Australian First – NATA Accreditation for ACMA RCM Approval of Cellular Devices
EMC Technologies is proud to announce that it has achieved NATA 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 of the mobile telecommunications sector. Contrary to some advice, a Certification Body Statement (CBS) is not mandatory, however if required, a CBS can be arranged trough a partner company that accepts our NATA reports .
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
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.
