NTRA introduces further type approval schemes

, 2020-07-21

In March 2020 we already informed you about the introduction of 2 type approval schemes for applications in Egypt. Recently, the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) introduced 2 additional certification schemes and further clarified the requirements for each scheme:

The light scheme applies for ISO 17025 accredited manufacturers. Provided the manufacturer does not have an ISO 17025 accreditation, the factory location determines which approval scheme should be applied:

Factory Location Approval Scheme
Australia, Canada, Japan, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, USA, Western Europe Light scheme
Any other country, which is not listed Intermediate scheme
China and India Tight scheme
Egypt Guided scheme

Please note: While the light and intermediate scheme follow roughly the same procedure, an application following the guided scheme will require a factory inspection of NTRA.
