DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRY

TELECOMMUNICATIONS ACT

Notice No. SMSE-019-15 — Amendments to Declaration of Conformity DC-01 and Procedure for Conformity Assessment Bodies CB-02

Notice is hereby given by Industry Canada that the following documents will be modified to reflect the amendments to the Telecommunications Act that will come into force on September 30, 2015:

These documents will be available on the Department’s Spectrum Management and Telecommunications Web site on October 1, 2015.

General information

Changes to the documents above will reflect the amendments made to the Telecommunications Act (“the Act”) that will come into force on September 30, 2015, and relate to the way in which technical specifications are enforced with regard to telecommunications apparatus.

Under the Act, the Minister will continue to set technical specifications for telecommunications apparatus (such as telephones, digital subscriber line equipment and modems). However, all references to technical acceptance certificates will be removed from the Act and replaced with a registration requirement.

The Telecommunications Apparatus Register (TAR) is a new tool that will be managed by Industry Canada and that will list telecommunications apparatus that meet the technical specifications and can therefore be legally distributed in, leased in, sold in and imported into Canada. The Minister will require that all telecommunications apparatus that are subject to technical specifications or markings be registered in accordance with the amended provisions. Equipment listed on the Terminal Equipment List (TEL) will be recognized as being registered under the Act and will be listed on the TAR as of September 30, 2015. After that date, the TEL will no longer be used and all telecommunications apparatus will have to meet the applicable requirements to be listed on the TAR.

Part IV.1 of the Act will continue to require that all telecommunications apparatus meet technical specifications and marking requirements before they can be distributed in, leased in, sold in or imported into Canada.

The relevant amendments to the Act that will come into force on September 30, 2015, are listed under section 196, subsections 197(1), (2) and (4) and section 198 of the Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No. 2 (http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/AnnualStatutes/2014_39/).

Inquiries

Should you have any questions regarding these amendments, please contact the Directorate of Regulatory Standards (res.nmr@ic.gc.ca).
