The outline of the regulation is as below:

1) NO. Modification Items Effects:
1. Applicant information changes No testing; A new type approval certificate is issued. An original certificate number is not changed
2. Factory information changes No testing; A paperwork of changes is required to submit to SRRC. Original a certificate number is not changed
3. Factory quality system changes: (production scope, technical force, quality assurance system, production line, and production origin)
Paperwork of changes is required to submit to SRRC. The original certificate number is not changed. Testing is required which depends on technical data evaluation;
4. Components changes (RF signal processing chip, power gain related device, filter, baseband chip, RF transceiver related device, RF power supply, and other management-related
devices, switching devices, duplexers, antenna related devices, clock-related devices, etc) Paperwork of changes are required to submit to SRRC. The original certificate number is not changed. Testing is required which depends on technical data evaluation.
5. Model name changes before actual production and sale
No testing; A new type approval certificate is issued. An original certificate number is not changed
6. Other changes due to the change of National regulation or radio management policy. Testing is required which depends on the requirement of new regulation; A new type of approval certificate is issued. Original a certificate number is not changed.

2) A Specific Product Category using the “Embedded Non-Independent Operational Radio module (Limited module or full module) can fully or partially leverage the test result of the embedded radio module.
a. If the module is full non-independent module then the final product is not required to apply SRRC certification, only needs to put the module’s SRRC ID on the product label or user guide
b. If the module is a limited non-independent module, then the final product is required to apply for a new SRRC certification. additional RSE testing is required.

3) Family type approvals are permitted for the above two product categories. The requirement is as below:
a. Product features and functions are identical
b. The appearance of the product is roughly the same (Small changes including color and size but no impact on RF parameters etc)
c. The embedded radio modules are already SRRC certified. Moreover, the embedded “limited Non-independent Operational radio modules with WLAN, Bluetooth and public communication (NB-IoT and eMTC) are also applicable to family type approvals
