Equipment Type Approval (ETA) is an approval that has to be obtained from WPC before importing any wireless device into India which doesn’t require a WPC License and functions in the de-licensed frequency band. Such equipment includes products like Bluetooth devices, mobile phones, wi-fi technology, RFID and others. Some frequency bands have been assigned a license-free status so one doesn’t need to have a license from WPC for products operating in those frequencies. Furthermore, to obtain an ETA, a detailed test report of the equipment obtained from a well-recognized laboratory has to be submitted to WPC for evaluation. We help our clients with testing of their equipment and obtaining the test report in the proper format for submission to WPC. The timeframe for this entire process to complete is around two to three weeks.


Extended technical audit is unique, as depending on current tasks and audited safety areas the required number of experts or groups is formed, taking into account qualifications according to diplomas, work experience in fields of activity, experts qualification confirmed with licenses, certificates and attestations. This approach ensured an integrated approach, objectivity, competence, and independence of the experts’ opinions in certain safety areas both during the audits and at the stage of preparation and presentation of Final consolidated reports to the Customer.

At Customer’s own discretion conduction of audits and combination in any safety areas, with any number of objects, including information and competence of personnel, is possible.

Audit objects and audited areas are any organizations in any sectors of industry, as RR possesses experts with competence codes confirmed by certificates; in case of a considerable amount of work, a number of objects, the remoteness of RR subdivisions, RR can provide several audit-specific expert teams without damage to the terms and quality of works.

Their results are based only on raised facts and determining evidence.
