Element is one of a handful Registered Certification Bodies (RCBs) outside Japan that can certify radio equipment for the Japanese market place. 

Japan Radio Certification Requirements and Services

Element is a Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) appointed Registered Certification Body (RCB), also known as a Japanese Conformity Assessment Body (CAB); a RCB can be used for certification of radio devices which enables the use of Ordinance mark, which is also known as the “Giteki” or TELEC mark, on the product. MIC certification is required for certain categories of radio devices prior to placing them into the Japanese market place.   

Your equipment needs to be assessed to applicable Japanese Radio Ordinance Law and then the results (test reports) are submitted, along with other documentation such as schematic diagrams, bill of materials and user materials, to the RCB for evaluation.

 A successful evaluation of the submitted documents will lead to RCB issuing a MIC ID which is required for placement on the Japanese market.

MIC Certification process

As a CAB, Element will assess your telecommunications, radio and wireless products to ensure compliance to MIC certification.

After completing a license application, we will examine your product for safety, functionality and conformance, and issue a pre-license. Once this is done, the product will undergo a final inspection; upon completion of the inspection, a full license will be issued, and the product can be taken to market. Depending on the type of product and intended use, we can issue JRF and JPA approval certifications under Japan Radio Law.
