ANAB is recognized by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) to accredit testing laboratories located in countries without mutual recognition arrangements (non-MRA countries) for testing of telecommunications equipment.

Based on ISED’s Procedure for the Recognition of Accreditation Bodies for Non-MRA Countries REC-AB (Issue 1), ANAB can accredit testing laboratories located in the People’s Republic of China, Indonesia, India, Japan, the Philippines, Russia, Thailand, and Ukraine and designate them to ISED to test telecommunications terminal equipment, radio apparatus, and broadcasting equipment standards.

ANAB reviews the qualifications of an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited test laboratory’s personnel, management systems, and record keeping and reporting practices, and sends recognized experts to observe testing at the laboratory to verify the laboratory’s competence to perform tests in accordance with ISED-related measurement procedures for both wireline and wireless telecommunications equipment.

ANAB’s scope of recognition is included on ISED’s List of Recognized Accreditation Bodies for non-MRA countries.
