  • New validity period for type approval certificate

    As previously released as an advanced notice on 26th of September 2019, the new regulation regarding the validity period of type approval certificates has come into force.

    L’Autorité de Régulation de la Poste et des Télécommunications du Congo (ARPTC) has recently published the decision 065/ARPTC/CLG/2019

    The approval of terminal equipment or radio installation is now granted for varying durations with equipment being classified into 6 categories

    1. Equipment connected to telecommunications networks and radio transmitters (Validity: 5 years)
    2. Landline and mobile phones. Low power equipment (Validity: 2 years)
    3. All other equipment different from the first two categories containing a radio module (Validity: 2 years)
    4. Receivers, reception decoders (Validity: 2 years)
    5. Antennas (Validity: 5 years)
    6. All other equipment not listed in categories 1-5 (Validity: 2 years)

    The renewal will be done under the same conditions.


    The new regulation also indicates marking rerquirements. The equipment must be labelled prior to marketing by the applicant, with an irremovable label including the following information:

    • Approval number and date

    • Identification of the model and batch or serial number

    • Manufacturer or supplier identification

    Source: original Décision 065/ARPTC/CLG/2019 in French

  • Certificates: New validity period

    Advance notice: New validity period for ARPTC certificates.
    Up to now, certificates' validity was set to 10 years.
    Based on an internal research, a new regulation will become in force in near future; namely:
    • Certificates for modules will have a validity of 2 years only.
    • Certificates for large equipment such as printers, computers, etc. will be issued for the validity period of 3 years.
    • And equipment connected to a public network will be approved for 5 years.
    Once IBL-AG will receive an official information from ARPTC, we will update you immediately.

Safety Information for Congo Democratic Republic

Type C Plug
Type C Sock Type C Plug Type C Sock

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.
Type D Plug
Type D Sock Type D Plug Type D Sock

The Type D electrical plug has three large round pins in a triangular pattern. Type M plugs are often used alongside Type D plugs for larger appliances and as a result, some sockets work with both Type D and Type M plugs. Type D plugs are rated 5 amps.
Type E Plug
Type E Sock Type E Plug Type E Sock

The Type E electrical plug has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart and a hole for the socket’s male grounding pin. The Type E socket is different to the Type F socket which is standard in other continental European countries, such as Germany. 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 E plugs are rated 16 amps.
