The market approval for Jordan requires a TRC certification.
The market approval for the Kingdom of Jordan is based on the national requirements of the local authority Telecom Regulatory Agency (TRC). Only through the TRC approval it is possible for manufacturers to bring such products to the market in Jordan.
The TRC approval is a national certification regime. In addition to national specifications, which are strongly geared to the requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED). The scope of testing for approval by the TRC is therefore also very much in line with the requirements for a CE marking, so that test reports and certificates issued for the CE marking can be reused. It is therefore not necessary to carry out local tests in a laboratory in Jordan, nor to engage a local representative.
For the approval process, a manufacturer must plan between four and six weeks. The TRC approval is valid for one year, so that even unmodified products must be recertified.
Although the test process is based on the CE Marking specification, the TRC requires the use of its own market access certification label in Jordan. The label is a simple font consisting of TRC, device type, registration year, serial and registration number: TRC/XXX/YYYY/XX.
Manufacturers must affix the TRC label on the product. In exceptional cases, the label can also be displayed in the manual; especially for devices where the label cannot be displayed legibly.
