Re: Implementation of Canada-Israel MRA Phase I


This bulletin is to inform Canadian testing laboratories and other MRA stakeholders that Phase I of the MRA between the Government of Canada and the State of Israel for conformity assessment of telecommunications equipment, entered into force on January 18th, 2013 is ready to be implemented effective immediately.

Canadian Testing laboratories wishing to be recognized by Israel are invited to apply to Industry Canada for designation. The specific technical regulations for which Israel will accept test reports from recognized Canadian testing laboratories are listed in the Annex. Designation procedures are available at http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf01750.html.

Phase II implementation will be announced at a later mutually agreed upon date between Canada and Israel.

Inquiries may be directed to the Manager, Telecommunications Equipment Regulatory Requirements at the following e-mail address: telecom.reg@ic.gc.ca.
