77 GHz band opened now
On 2020-01-20, the Algerian Republic published the JOURNAL OFFICIEL DE LA REPUBLIQUE ALGERIENNE N°05
New list of Characteristics of short-range devices used in the establishment of private internal radio networks have been published.
The maximum allowed Output Power / maximum magnetic field level has been defined for several frequency bands from 9 KHz – 246 GHz considering different applications like inductive, RFID, medical, general ISM applications and Radars.
Now the 77 GHz Band with limitation of 1W maximum output power is possible.
On 17th of October Algerian's Authority AUTORITÉ DE RÉGULATION DE LA POSTES ET DES COMMUNICATIONS ÉLÉCTRONIQUES (ARPCE) has published the new procedure for type approval under "Decision N°28/SP/PC/ARPECE/2019 du 16/10/2019".
Here is a short overview of important points to be aware of:
The validity of all certificates is 3 years from now on
Submitted test reports should not be older than 3 years / same applies tp declarations from manufactuerers as well
SAR tests are mandatory
The deadline of the evaluation for any application won't exceed two months
ARPCE calls on any licencees of GPS, GSM and GMPCS to re-register with the new authority before 2018-09-30. The former ARPT website now resolves to ARPCE.
Algeria reassigns regulatory competence to ANF
On 2018-05-13, the Algerian Republic published an updated Law in the JOURNAL OFFICIEL DE LA REPUBLIQUE ALGERIENNE N°27. This Law n° 18-04 is transferring the regulatory authority power from the Autorité de Régulation (ARTP) to the Agence Nationale des Fréquences (ANF) for SRD products. The procedure details are still under discussion.
Thus the ARTP confirmed to IB-Lenhardt that it will remain the competent body for homologating equipments which can be directly or indirectly connected to a public network. Such equipment will still require a Certificate of Conformity.
ARPT (Autorité de Régulation de la Poste et des Télécommunications) recently informed that Type Approval services are on hold due to the current election of a new Director. Consequently, there will be no new Type Approval certificates issued in the meantime.
Normal services are expected to resume after the election of the new Director.
The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
The Type F electrical plug (also known as a Schuko plug) has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart. It is similar to the Type E plug but has two earth clips on the side rather than a female earth contact. The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to work with sockets E and F and has grounding clips on both sides (to work with Type F sockets) and a female contact (to accept the grounding pin of the type E socket). Type F plugs are rated 16 amps.
