News for Mauritius

  • Addition to News from 2020-01-21 ICTA released new Directives

    Please be informed that we gained additional information regarding ICTA's new Directive from October 2019.

    As we informed in January 2020, ICTA (Information & Communication Technologies Authority) in Mauritius released a directive that short range devices for Transport and Traffic Telematics, such as Automobile sensors and Keyless entry systems, are exempted from Type Approval. 

    The ICTA categorized ICT equipment in 7 categories: List A-G. Short range devices are now Category C devices and therefore subject to a Declaration of compliance issued by local licensed dealers. At the first step local importers need to register at the ICTA as local licensed dealers. With our support, they are able to issue a DoC on basis of the technical information. This DoC is crucial for getting an import clearance.

    According to the authority the certificates acquired previously in Mauritius cannot be used for import to Mauritius anymore as the local licensed dealer needs to apply for import clearance for every shipment individually.

    We'll gladly support you in getting your import clearance. Please don't hesitate to contact us.

  • ICTA released new directives

    ICTA in Mauritius released a directive that short range devices for Transport and Traffic Telematics, such as Automobile sensors and Keyless entry systems are exempted from Type Approval. This directive became effective in 2019-10-01.

    The authority has created 6 categories (List A-F) of ICT equipment. According to the new directive, Short range devices belong to Category C and therefore are subject to a Declaration of compliance by local licensed dealers to obtain an import clearance.

    Furthermore, there will be no type approval certificates anymore. Type approved equipment will be added to the list of type approved equipment on the authority ‘s website.

  • ICTA releases 2 telecommunication directives

    In Mauritius ICTA has introduced two new directives. Both directives easen the import mainly of smartphones but the second effectively nullifies the need for type approval of BT and WiFi devices:

    6.9 No Type Approval from the Authority is required for the importation and sale of devices equipped only with Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth® as exemplified below –

    Application Devices equipped with Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth®
    Automotive Car infotainment systems
    Consumer Electronics

    Television set, CD/DVD players, Washing Machines, Refrigerators, Cameras, Home entertainment systems, Household appliances

    PC Peripherals Wireless Mouse, Keyboard, Touchpad, Microphone, Speaker, Printer/Scanner
    Sports & Fitness Sport equipment

    However, devices still need to be compliant with ICTA's requirements.
