Telecommunication and Internet Association (CTIA)
Moreover, in order to verify validity of test report submitted, each of these 40 labs needs to appoint a contact person by providing contact person name, phone number, and email address. Whenever SDPPI needs to verify the reports, they can contact the contact person directly. Lastly, this regulation will be valid for 6 months starting from its issuance date. The expiry date of SDPPI regulation number 183 of 2019 is on April 15th, 2020.
