MALAYSIA: Updates on Certification of IPV6 Over Cellular Equipment Without Wi-FI Connectivity
August 24, 2022

In July 2022, SIRIM was Informed that the implementation of the interim Type Approval for IPv6 cellular equipment without WiFi interface is extended for another year, effective from 10th July 2022, until further notice. As such, all new applications and renewal of Certificate of Conformity (CoC) are allowed with a maximum validity of one (1) year. For equipment using IPv6 over other interfaces (e.g: fiber optic etc. except for Ethernet LAN), interim approval will also be issued with a validity period of one (1) year.

However, it is important to note that within the interim approval period, the applicant must conduct the test in any accredited laboratory available and submit the test report for SIRIM evaluation. Full approval will be issued only if the IPv6 over cellular or other interfaces complies with the IPv6 requirements.
