PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) COC to technical standards
As we have already described that once you have the PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) COC to technical standards, it means that your devices are properly listed and their IMEIs are stored in records of PTA. This is the foremost exercise practiced all over the world where any wireless devices are imported. It is important to have the record of each wireless/terminal device working in any country.
Here it is also important to know that the PTA-COC is only obligatory when the devices you are importing are SIM based. For the devices where no SIM is required, Only PTA Type Approval Certificate is necessary at the shipment time for clearance. So it is always compulsory to check that your devices that do not require SIMs are already Type Approved by PTA before import. Nano Technology Solutions can help you in this matter to get the PTA Type Approved Certificate.
There may be a situation that can occur, where all your devices are imported successfully, given that your devices are already PTA Type Approved and PTA-COC to technical standards is also issued. All your imported devices are cleared at the time of shipment but when you start using it some of your devices are not working, they get blocked. When you verify the devices’ IMEI numbers from PTA website or via SMS to 8484, you get response that these devices are not registered by PTA.
This can be a very bad experience to face, especially if you are dealing with a serious business situation with these devices. Well there is a fair chance to cope up with this issue by simply contacting PTA and submit an application request to look into this matter. Actually there may be a case where your devices’ IMEIs are not whitelisted according to the process. So after submitting the application PTA shall look into it and whitelist the blocked devices making them operational again.
