New Type Approval Requirements
Ghana's National Communication Authority (NCA) revised its guidelines in May 2015 as follows:
A local company is now required for all type approval applications if the manufacturer does not have a branch in Ghana.
Regarding the publication of the type approved devices on NCA website: "The Authority will maintain on its website a list of approved ECE (hereinafter referred to as "Type Approval Register") to be accessed by the general public";
A regularly updated list of testing laboratories recognized by the Authority will be available on the Authority's website. The Authority can demand re-testing at a laboratory assigned by the Authority on the applicant's expense,
Approved Terminal Equipment must be labeled, bearing the mark 'NCA Approved: XXX-XXXXX-XXX' (Appendix 3 of Guidelines). Electronic Marking is acceptable;
NCA shall perform market surveillance to ensure that only type approved ECE is sold in Ghana.
