SRRC Certification for telecommunication products in China

Devices from the telecommunications sector that use radio technologies (Wi-Fi, WLAN, NFC, Bluetooth, etc.) may require SRRC (State Radio Regulation of China) registration in China. Products that are equipped with radio transmitters and use specific frequency bands require an SRRC certificate. Devices that only have a receiving function do not fall under the SRRC certification requirement. The authority responsible for issuing the SRRC certificate is the State Radio Monitoring and Testing Center (SRTC).

Logo of the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology

SRRC tests must be conducted at a testing laboratory in China accredited by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).  This authority emerged from the Ministry of Information Industry in 2008 and is responsible for the supervision and development of information technologies.

After completion of the SRRC certification, products can be imported into China. It is mandatory to affix the label with a CMIIT (Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology) ID on it. This is the ID that the manufacturer receives as part of the SRRC certification process so that the products can be imported into China or sold on the Chinese market.

Examples for SRRC-Relevant Products

Whether a product requires SRRC/NAL or not depends on whether it is equipped with Bluetooth and/ or Wi-Fi functions. For example, the following products may fall under this category:

  • Smartphones
  • Printers with Wi-Fi function
  • Bluetooth headphones
  • Wireless Modems
  • Measuring devices if they use a wireless function
  • Smart home systems

Issuance of the SRRC certificate

SRRC testing must be conducted in a Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (CMIIT) accredited testing laboratory in China. SRRC testing is an important part of SRRC registration. For the test, the devices are connected to a test station.

The objective of the SRRC test is to determine the core parameters of the telecommunication products such as frequency, frequency band, transmission power, frequency tolerance, occupied bandwidth (or spectral characteristic of the signal) and parameters of the frequency spectrum such as out-of-band emissions (OoB) and spurious emissions (SPU). It is important to note that the parameters resulting from the test must match the parameters specified in the application documents. Otherwise, the application may have to be resubmitted.

The processing time of the authority and the test laboratory is approximately 6-8 weeks from the submission of the application documents.

Market Surveillance in China

After obtaining the SRRC certificate, applicants need to upload sales/purchase contracts within 6 months into the SRRC online system.

MIIT will conduct random checks in China. The manufacturer, which is randomly chosen, will receive an email notification from MIIT. Then the manufacturer needs to send the sample to one of the 7 designated laboratories in China for testing.

SRRC Registration Application Documents at a Glance

The following documents are part of the document package that must be submitted for SRRC registration:

  • Application form
  • ISO 9001 Certificate
  • Business License
  • Material BOM (only a rough overview)
  • Copy of identification of the managing director
  • Photos of the product
  • Cooperation agreement
  • Company profile
  • Example of a nameplate
  • Product manual
  • Circuit diagram
  • Information on test methods

All documents must be submitted in Chinese, signed and stamped.

SRRC Marking – The MIIT Label

Products with SRRC certification must be marked with a MIIT label (see example below):


The previous CMIIT ID is composed as follows:


Year/Device type/Place of manufacture/Numbering

From December 1st, 2023, the new CMIIT ID is as follows:


The new SRRC code has a total of 12 digits:

  • AA represents the year code (2 digits). E.g., 24 for 2024.
  • B represents the equipment code (1 capital letter)
  • CC represents the territorial code. (2 digits)
  • DDD represents the enterprise code (3 digits, including at least 1 digit)
  • EEEE is an autonomous code (4 digits, the first one can be capital letter or number, the last three must be digits).

The SRRC certificate applicants can compile their own codes according to the rules, but they need to pay attention to the following matters:

  1. The independently compiled SRRC code should comply with radio management laws and regulations and must not violate public order or cause any ambiguity.
  2. The autonomous part of the code is independently defined and generated by the applicant according to the rules. Applicants should strengthen independent code management to avoid submitting duplicate or invalid codes when applying. After the SRRC application is accepted, the applicant is not allowed to change the SRRC code on its own.
  3. The year code is the year when the application was submitted. For applications where the application and certification time are not in the same year, the year code should still be filled in according to the time when the application was submitted.
  4. For applicants who give up on compiling their own SRRC codes, the system will randomly generate the SRRC code.
  5. The SRRC code can be obtained when submitting the application, but the actual effective date is still after the SRRC certificate is issued. Only after obtaining the SRRC certificate, the enterprises can produce and sell related radio transmitting equipment.

SRRC Certificate

The SRRC certificate consists of a main page and attachments: Main information such as the certified product and equipment name is reflected on the first page. Specific information such as technical parameters are reflected on the attachment.

In addition, the certificate also includes information of the OEM company onAttachment 2. It contains information such as the device’s manufacturing company information, company attributes, and address.

Challenges during the SRRC Certification Process

The major challenge in SRRC and NAL certification is the preparation of the application documents. All documents must be submitted in the designated form, 100% correct and in Chinese. The Business License must be submitted in Chinese as well.

Our team in Germany and China can fully support you in this process with native Chinese speakers and experts in the field of telecommunication products.

SRRC Certification FAQ

How do I know if my products need SRRC registration?

Products that have the following radio standards/mobile standards are most likely to fall under SRRC: Bluetooth, Wifi.

After reviewing the exact frequency ranges, the scope of certification can be determined.

We generally recommend having every product from the telecommunication sector checked for certification requirements. Products from the IoT area may also need additional certifications such as CCC.

How long does the SRRC type approval process take?

Product testing for the SRRC type approval usually takes 6-8 weeks. For more urgent projects, there is an express mode that takes 5-6 weeks. Since many application documents are required and they all need to be submitted in Chinese as well, a total processing time of at least 12-14 weeks, or 10-12 weeks in express mode, should be expected.

How long is the SRRC license valid?

The license is valid for 5 years. After that, a new license must be applied for.

What is the best way to prepare for SRRC certification?

We recommend you check the relevant product standards and Chinese regulations. We will be happy to support you if you have any questions.

Which factories need to be audited?

The SRRC process does not include an audit. Certification simply consists of application and supporting documentation to be submitted and product testing in a Chinese laboratory.

Do the authorities inform SRRC certificate holders about changes in the regulations?

No. The Chinese authorities will not contact you. Changes in the regulations are often only published on the authorities’ websites in Chinese. However, SRRC license holders are obliged to inform themselves regularly about changes. We are happy to assist here.
