Type approval in Thailand synapse

Thailand does not have any special approval process for importing for field test or trials samples before your obtain your type approval certificate from Thailand.
Your importer should be familiar with obtaining an import-to-export approval or permit that allows field samples to be imported.
Telecommunication equipment subject to Supplier ‘s Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) scheme is the equipment for which the NTC had prescribed technical standard or technical requirement, but the NTC does not require such equipment to be registered or certified. In this case, supplier has an obligation to provide written attestation that the equipment conforms to such standard or requirement using Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) form.

Thailand – New Standard Issued for 78‑79 MHz and 245‑247 MHz Bands

Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) issued NBTC TS 1002‑256, replacing standard NTC TS 1002‑2553. This new standard was effective as of February 24, 2018 and the main changes affect bandwidth, rated carrier power, and frequency deviation. Please note, there is no change to the Type Approval schemes for products operating in these bands requiring National Class B certification, and no impact to products that have already been approved based on the previous standard.

Thailand - Frequency Band Criteria for Wireless Microphones

Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) recently issued a document detailing the criteria for frequency band usage for wireless microphones as a supplement to the new standard for wireless microphones. Major points are detailed below:

The 803-806 MHz band can be used for wireless microphones effective immediately.
Use of the 694-703 MHz and 748-758 MHz bands will be permitted starting January 1, 2021. Although Type Approval can be sought from June 1, 2018, import and use for these frequencies will only be permitted from 2021 forward.
The three new bands are all license-exempt.

Type Approval certificates issued under the old standard for 794-806 MHz wireless microphones will continue to be valid until December 31, 2020. After this transition period, these Type Approval certificates will become invalid and manufacturers should apply for new Type Approval certificates under the new standard. All wireless microphones using 794-806 MHz should be adjusted to 803-806 MHz before December 31, 2020.
