answer: 1, PTCRB introduce

PTCRB  (PCS  Type  Certification  Review  Board)   refers to the personal communications service type certification evaluation committee, established by the North American mobile operators in 1997. The current operators are not limited to North America, but include members of mobile operators worldwide. Its purpose is to provide model authentication for end products and modules including Cellular , GERAN (GSM),  , UTRAN , (UMTS) and E-UTRAN  (LTE).

to ensure that your mobile or communications devices can work on the PTCRB operator's mobile network, your device must be certified by PTCRB. This is also to ensure that your product matches the mobile standards of the carrier network. Therefore, for PTCRB - Certified device products, PTCRB operators may prevent the product from running and working on its network.

 

2, North American PTCRB requires

operator access authentication

in the United States, operators access certification, also known as PTCRB certification test. PTCRB also has a validation team, which is responsible for PTCRB mobile terminal model authentication and IMEI distribution.

PTCRB certification is the third party certification bodies to enforce the quasi mandatory model certification, all of the North American market PCS terminal equipment will be subject to PTCRB certification, and in accordance with the report for IMEI. Here is the quasi mandatory, mandatory government supervision departments should be released, but PTCRB is not a government, is the forum form, but very authoritative, the reason is that the North American operators according to the manufacturers of the products must be PTCRB certified, so called quasi mandatory.
