Djibouti - Type Approval Scheme Reinstated

Posted on May 20th 2017 by
On May 17, 2017, we were advised that Djibouti's Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, chargé des Postes et des Télécommunications (MCPT), had reinstated its Type Approval Scheme.  In 2013, the MCPT placed all Type Approval applications on hold due to planned changes to its spectrum management system. The Authority advised that no Type Approval certificates would be issued in the interim.
We have been able to confirm the following with regard to the reinstated Type Approval Scheme:
  • The process is paperwork only
  • No samples are required
  • Certificates are valid for 5 years
  • Foreign manufacturers can continue to hold the Approval
  • Estimated lead-time is 3-4 weeks
  • There are no labelling requirements in place
We are still clarifying the full product scope to be included under this new scheme and any impact to products already on the market.
