Importing IT & Telecom Equipment in Taiwan
The import process for many goods is quite simple for Taiwan. Several goods do not need any import license or permit; however, there are certain exceptions, like agriculture products, armament, and sanitation products. Medical equipment and chocolate manufactured in China are entirely prohibited in Taiwan.
Although many imports do not require any license from the Taiwanese government; the electronics industry has to follow several rules and regulations. The authority that is regarded as responsible for the development of the primary national standards in Taiwan is the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection. It works under the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
The Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection also develops inspection measures that fall into the category of a Taiwanese inspection law. IOR Service in Taiwan can significantly support your company by not only understanding the rules and regulations of Taiwan but quickly acquiring the required certificate.
The CNS Mark System
It is a type of certification system that ensures the quality standards and compliance measures of the country are met. The certificate is given to foreign companies by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection. The importers can apply for the certificate with the authority based on their products. The certificate is given once all the compliance standards are met.
Analysis of the Quality Management Systems
The importer companies’ quality management systems are appropriately analyzed along with the product testing to issue the CNS mark certification. The whole assessment process is conducted by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection or certain authorized bodies that BSMI gives the Power.
The following content is taken from the publications of the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
The provisions of Article 3 of the Regulations Governing the CNS Mark (hereinafter referred to as “the Regulations”) state the following requirements of the Certification System:
(i) The quality management system (hereinafter referred to as “QMS”) of the factory is certified against CNS 12681 (ISO 9001) by quality management system certification bodies that are located in Taiwan or in the same country as the factory and recognized by the BSMI (hereinafter referred to as “the BSMI-recognized QMS CBs”), and the product is tested to be in compliance with relevant CNS; or
(ii) The factory obtains factory reports from BSMI or the factory inspection bodies located in Taiwan or in the same country as the factory that are recognized by the BSMI (hereinafter referred to as “the factory inspection agency/bodies”) and the product is tested to be in compliance with relevant CNS.
Telecom and Radio-Frequency Devices
In Taiwan, the National Communication Commission makes rules and regulations for telecommunication radio frequency devices, including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. There are four significant motives of the commission that are as follows:
● It aims to protect the rights of the people
● It works for the promotion and development of the communication sector of Taiwan
● It works to enhance multicultural diversity
● It also aims to protect the interest of users
All Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-related products must pass through a long list of tests before they are approved to enter the Taiwanese market. The National Communication Commission authorized a specific body that conducts all these tests for telecom products. Once the product successfully passes all these tests, a logo that mentions NCC is pasted on them.
