We should explain for you there is no direct recognition of any other overseas certificates, declarations, test reports and factory inspections for FAC / telecom approvals. But our partner labs can reissue CB/CE reports in accordance with FAC / telecom requirements without re-testing if they find all necessary technical information in your test reports and documentations. Our company also provides local declaration representative services for overseas manufacturers who doesn’t have a local representative company in Russia.

Modular approval

Manufacturer can approve a telecom built-in module or an end-user device, it doesn't matter legally. It depends on manufacturer's choice only. But to approve an end-user device should be better way. If a manufacturer approves only a module, in this case the one has to provide some legal and design information to many officials its partners (for example — importer, customs clearance office etc.) that the end-user device includes the module which has been completely approved. Sometimes it may be difficult. We can offer a discount to register the declarations if some families include the identical module.
