CB Notice 2019-03

TO: Certification Bodies recognized by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED)

RE: Decisions on New Requirements for Wireless Device Testing Laboratories

Notice is hereby given that Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) will allow Certification Bodies to accept test reports from wireless test sites on file for testing completed prior to March 15, 2019, if uploaded to the Certification Engineering Bureau (CEB) system before June 15, 2019. This will allow an additional three(3) month grace period for projects that were already underway.

All testing performed after March 15, 2019 for new applications for certification shall be performed by an ISED recognized wireless testing laboratory.

Within this three (3) month grace period, Certification Bodies shall inform each manufacturer submitting a test report from a non-recognized Wireless Device Testing Laboratory that the reports from these laboratories will no longer be accepted after June 15, 2019.
