The National Communications Commission (NCC) yesterday said that it would work with the Ministry of Economic Affairs to consider whether to fine e-commerce platforms that sell uncertified wireless and Bluetooth devices.

The Chinese-language Liberty Times (the Taipei Times’ sister newspaper) yesterday reported that Taobao Taiwan — which launched in Taiwan last month — was found to be selling devices that do not carry NCC-issued certification codes on its platform.

Manufacturers must obtain the certification codes before they can sell their products in Taiwan, the newspaper said.

The commission has talked to Taobao Taiwan’s management to let them know they should ensure that only legal wireless devices are sold on their platform, NCC acting spokesman Hsiao Chi-hung (蕭祈宏) said.    [FULL  STORY]
