Industry Canada Application

Below you'll find the required forms and other information about your product we need to begin the process of applying for Industry Canada Certification on your behalf.

When submitting a TCB application, please indicate the desired completion date. The Intertek TCB will strive to meet the desired completion date. In cases where the TCB determines that it is unable to do so, we will estimate the earliest date that it might be possible to start the review based on complexity of the project and current reviewer workload. The duration of the review depends on the complexity of the product and radio technologies, the quality of the submitted documentation, and on prompt responses to any inquiries the TCB reviewer has, and cannot begin until the full set of required documentation is received and all administrative issues are resolved. Providing a complete documentation package and promptly responding to any requests for additional documentation, clarification, or amendments will help expedite your application and meet your desired completion date.

Completion of the Canadian Certification is ultimately pending the Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada response time after an application has been loaded. The estimate that Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada provides is one-to-two weeks before they release it to the REL after the TCB uploads. It can be faster or slower depending on their workload, complexity of application, and other factors.

Email completed forms and additional questions about the application process to tcb_admin@intertek.com. We will begin reviewing your application within 24 hours of receipt.

Newly assigned CNs will be made up of five numeric characters (e.g. "20001") whereas existing CNs may consist of up to five numeric characters followed by an alphabetic character (e.g. "21A" or "15589J"). E-Filing
Unique Product Number (UPN)Assigned by the applicant, made of at most 11 alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9). (A) It's preferable that the client chooses the UPN. Permitted alphanumerical characters used in the UPN are limited to capital letters (A-Z) and digits (0-9). Other characters, such as "#", "/" or "-", shall not be used.
