New radio type approval regulation published in Senegal
The Senegalese Telecommunication Authority ARTP issued updated type approval regulations for radio products.
The Decision N 2021-011 of ARTP changes the existing radio type approval procedure from 2004. In comparison to the previous regulation, several changes will be implemented, e.g.:
- the certificate validity will be changed from unlimited to 5 years;
- local testing will become mandatory.
Moreover, a label will be implemented. It will have the form of a text box stating that the device was approved by ARTP and will contain the approval number.
The new regulation is no good news for manufacturers: it will mean yet another label that they will have to attach to their devices.
