Mobile phones and certain accessories require SRRC type approval and NAL type approval. Only after obtaining these approvals, in the course of which the core parameters of telecommunications products are determined in the course of tests, are radio products allowed to be sold in China, and CCC certification for safety tests is also mandatory.
