If you are planning to buy a walkie talkie you need to know what kind of walkie talkie you want to buy. Walkie talkies are two-way radio devices used for communication and broadcasting. Other than the features you should also be concerned about the quality of the product, standards it has been made up to, a certification it has passed, quality standards it was tested against and if its safety for use. A substandard product device will give you poor connection, the voice will break and even better might discharge quicker. The Malaysian government has an organization to regulate and enforce quality and safety standards for telecommunication and broadcasting industry. The department is called Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission MCMC.
Walkie Talkie approved by MCMC
MCMC is responsible for several regulations among one which is to check the authenticity of telecommunication and broadcasting devices marketed in Malaysia. MCMC test the marketed products to see if they measure up to the quality and safety standards set by the government. An approved and certified device will have a label either embossed or printed on the product. The label can be found on the case or frame of the product. An app is also available on the Google play store which can verify the certification of the product. You can download this application for free and scan the QR code or IMEI of the product for verification. You would be surprised to know that almost half the walkie talkies available in the market are not MCMC approved. To avoid being cheated or purchasing an unsafe, poor quality or even illegal product make sure you check the label.
