The Agence de Gestion des Fréquences Radioélectriques (AIGF) from Ivory Coast have paved the way for use of 76-77 GHz frequency band for vehicular radars.
In a letter from 7 Jun 2021, the AIGF informed the General Manager of ARTCI (Autorité De Régulation Des Télécommunications/TIC de Côte d’Ivoire), that 76-77 GHz Radars for vehicles can be approved for use in the country. Basically the wish was to open the 76-81 GHz band for this application, but due to other applications in this field, the usage of vehicle anti-collision radar is limited to 76-77 GHz.

Public consultation on Ivory Coast's strategy of frequency management
The Autorité de Régulation des Télécommunications/TIC de Côte d'Ivoire (ARTCI) has started a public consultation which will end on 2018-10-12. Through a list of specific questions, they want to redefine the management of the Radio Frequencies in the country.
Apparently, ARTCI now allows the type approval of automotive Radars using 76-77 GHz. Since 77 GHz offers a smaller size, a better resolution and a higher accuracy, many manufacturers use them. Additionally, unlike 24 GHz, it is globally harmonized. Please note that there might still be future changes as the final legislation regarding 77 GHz has not yet been released.
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 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.
