Medical devices that incorporate wireless technology, such as cellular, RFID, WiFi, or Bluetooth, in the Philippines are considered Radio Communication Equipment (RCE) and subject to regulatory requirements of the National Telecoms Corporation (NTC). Each product must obtain a Device Type Approval (DTA) certificate, and each imported consignment must obtain an Import Permit.
DTA Certificates and Import Permits are issued to a local, license company with a valid Dealers Permit issued by the NTC. This entity will be responsible for submitting applications, customs clearance facilitation and monthly sales reporting in the form of Sales & Stock Report (SSR) complete with Professional Electronics Engineer (PECE) signal and seal.
Timelines and Fees
Average processing time is maximum 30 days from the date of submission of documents in complete. Query may be received for incomplete documents, extending lead time.
