TUV Product Service now offers a complete advisory, testing and certification service for batteries for cellular telephone manufacturers

TUV Product Service has been appointed as a Battery Certification Reviewing Organisation (BCRO) - the first outside North America - and is working with internationally recognised experts to offer a complete advisory, testing and certification service to cellular telephone manufacturers. The BCRO scheme officially came into force on 16th October 2006 and requires that battery packs, used in mobile devices intended for connection to wireless networks in the USA such as Verizon and Cingular, comply with the requirements of the recently published IEEE1725 'Standard for rechargeable batteries for cellular telephones'.

The standard covers requirements for the battery pack itself, the host device, AC/DC adapters, reliability, security and validation.

It is expected that this certification requirement will be mandatory from 2007 for all GSM mobile handsets in order to obtain PTCRB (PTS Type Certification Review Board) approval.

Richard Poate, TUV Product Service expert, explains that as an active participating member of the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) Battery Ad-hoc Certification Programme Working Group, TUV PS is constantly up to date with the requirements and has access to the latest news and developments.
