Mutual Recognition Agreements/Arrangements

The main purpose of MRAs is to facilitate trade by streamlining conformity assessment procedures for a wide range of telecommunications and telecommunications related products. Through MRAs, products that are tested and certified before exportation can enter the importing parties' territories directly without having to undergo similar conformity assessment procedures once they arrive. This is done by providing for the mutual recognition by the importing parties of conformity assessment bodies and the acceptance of their test reports, of which the result shows that a product conforms to the requirements of the importing party.
