MIIT Waives Charger Requirement for Handset Testing, 12/01/11

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's (MIIT) China Telecommunication Technology Labs (CTTL) recently divulged that starting December 1, handsets submitted for network access permit approval do not need to supply a power adapter.

In early 2010, MIIT published its mobile telecom terminal standard YD/T 1591-2009, or "Technical Requirements and Test Methods for Chargers and Data Interfaces for Mobile Telecommunications Terminals," stating that handsets and chargers must adopt a three-section design that includes round, mini-USB and micro-USB connections, allowing one charger to be used for various handset models. The standard, however, met serious obstacles as many overseas handset vendors failed to comply - the iPhone, for example, continues to use its own dock port design.
