SGS Hong Kong Ltd. has recently been accredited by Hong Kong’s Office of the Telecommunications Authority (OFTA) as a Local Certification Body (LCB). SGS HK is now authorized to carry out testing and certification of telecom equipment for use in Hong Kong.

HKTEC Scheme

As required by the Office of the Telecommunications Authority (OFTA), telecom equipment (TE) is subject to a certification and labelling scheme, the HKTEC (Hong Kong Telecommunications Equipment Evaluation and Certification). This includes radio communications equipment and wire-line equipment used for connecting to the public telecom networks (PTN), and industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) equipment that intentionally emits radio frequency energy and that is for use or sale in Hong Kong.

Voluntary and Compulsory Certification

Depending on the type of equipment, a Voluntary Certification Scheme (VCS) or Compulsory Certification Scheme (CCS) will apply. Equipment found to comply with the relevant technical specifications may carry the certification label. After one test, customers get a certification package that includes both the GS and CB certifications. SGS Hong Kong Ltd. provides evaluation and certification services for various products under either VCS or CCS. Find out what types of equipment are included in the VCS and the CCS.
