There are two phases in the MRA:
- Phase I: Mutual acceptance of test reports, e.g. equipment tested and approved by overseas MRA partners will not require re-testing in Singapore and vice versa.
- Phase II: Mutual acceptance of equipment certificates, e.g. equipment certified by overseas MRA partners can enter directly into Singapore market without requiring re-certification and vice versa.
Currently, the telecommunications equipment scope may include network terminal attachment and other equipment subject to telecommunications regulations, including wired and wireless equipment and terrestrial and satellite equipment, which may or may not be connected to a Public Telecommunications Network. For such equipment, the MRA covers electromagnetic compatibility ("EMC"), electrical safety as well as purely telecommunications aspects of the conformity assessment requirements.
The following is a list of IMDA’s existing MRA partners.
|Phase I||Phase II |
|Australia||Hong Kong ||United States|
|Chinese Taipei||United States|
Please refer to the Singapore Customs website for information on import, export and transhipment procedures.
Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs)
The following provides information on the scheme for the designation and recognition of testing laboratories and certification bodies for conformity assessment of telecommunication equipment.
The following CABs, testing labs and certification bodies, are designated and recognised by IMDA to provide conformity assessment services.
Recognised Testing Labs and Certification Bodies are local Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) designated by IMDA or foreign CABs designated and notified to IMDA by MRA partners. For foreign CABs who wish to be included in the above list, please contact the designating authority of the country concerned for designation and notification to IMDA.
