Type Approval Guidelines Issued
The Ministry of Information & Communication (MIC) of Tonga released an Official Guideline. Accordingly, all communication equipment with radio or satellite technology require Type Approval by MIC prior to being imported and marketed for use in Tonga.
Equipment is exempted from the requirement as follows:
Receiver-only radio equipment intended to be used solely for the reception of sound (radio) and terrestrial TV broadcasting services, including satellite dishes and aerials
Laptops, personal computers, tablets, and car radios with short range radio technology such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Digital displays or LCD screens for digital cameras, printers, car audios
Short range (up to 50 meters) infrared remote control equipment, including TV remote controls, toys, car or garage door openers, etc.
Terminal equipment used by licensed radio amateurs for personal use
New Type Approval Requirements
Tonga's MIC (Ministry of Information & Communications) has begun to enforce new Type Approval rules: Approval for Radio equipment is mandatory. Both FCC and CE test reports are admissible.
The Type I plug has two flat pins in a V-shape as well as a grounding pin. A version of the plug, which only has the two flat pins, exists as well. The Australian plug also works with sockets in China. Australia’s standard plug/socket system is rated 10 amps but a plug/socket configuration rated 15 amps also exists, although the ground pin is wider. A standard 10 amp plug will fit into a 15 amp socket but not the other way around.
