THE IMPORTANCE OF SDPPI CERTIFICATION FOR “BLUETOOTH” PRODUCTS
You must be familiar with Bluetooth technology. All telecommunication devices that have bluetooth features must be SDPPI certified in accordance with applicable regulations in Indonesia. Before discussing “why products with bluetooth need to be certified”, let’s find out what bluetooth is.
Bluetooth is a wireless communication technology that operates in the 2.4 GHz radio frequency band. Or in other words, Bluetooth is a ‘cable replacement’. Because bluetooth can be a substitute for cables, its use becomes easier. Bluetooth technology has a function to make it easier to share files/data, and connect devices with each other.
In this era of technology, many devices such as smart phones, smart homes, smart watches, smart printers and others have embedded bluetooth features. Indonesia is one of the big market opportunities for Technology Brand holders to market and sell the various Bluetooth products they have. The reason is because Indonesian people are known to be consumptive and like to follow trends.
However, you need to know that all products that have Bluetooth features must have SDPPI certification issued by the certification institution, the Directorate General of Post and Information Resources and Devices (SDPPI) of the Ministry of Communication and Information (Kominfo) of the Republic of Indonesia.
Why do products that have ‘bluetooth’ need to be certified?
Every product that has Bluetooth must be certified, as regulated in the Regulation of the Minister of Communication and Information of the Republic of Indonesia Number 16 of 2018. Other regulations regarding bluetooth certification are also regulated in Directorate General of SDPPI Regulation Number. 161 of 2019.
Another reason why products with bluetooth need to be certified is to ensure compliance with the technical requirements of telecommunications equipment / devices so that when operated they do not interfere with other telecommunications equipment / devices and / or telecommunications networks.
The technical requirements are more aimed at the function of telecommunications equipment / devices in the form of electronic parameters and with due regard to aspects outside the electrical / electronic parameters in accordance with applicable regulations and other aspects, such as the environment, safety and health.
Here is an example of a device that has bluetooth and must be certified :
– Headset bluetooth
– Speaker bluetooth
– Remote keyless
– Remote tv
– Camera digital
– Etc. (other devices with bluetooth)
