MII/NAL certification label

MII / NAL Certification

Certification for imported goods

For foreign manufacturers, NAL certification for affected telecommunications products is mandatory before a product can be imported and marketed in China.

Relevant product categories for the NAL certifications

The first product categories for NAL approval were introduced in 2001 and there are now 28 categories from three different main groups:

  • Telecommunications terminal equipment
  • Radio communication equipment
  • Telecommunication equipment for inter-network connection.

Meanwhile more than 300 telecommunication products are defined in the categories. These include communication or network equipment with interfaces to public networks or Wide Area Network (WAN) services. Common communication interfaces include T1/E1, ISDN BRI, ISDN PRI, ADSL, serial and analogue PSTN.

If a product requires NAL approval, this means that the product also requires CCC certification. Furthermore, SRRC certification is a prerequisite for NAL certification.
