Type Approval for Bahamas

All Regions » North America » Bahamas
The Utilities Regulation & Competition Authority in Nassau regulates product certification in the Bahamas. No local representative is required, which is why we work directly with the URCA. During the conformity assessment, URCA mainly relies on FCC test reports and the FCC grant, so no additional product testing is required for type approval. Due to the above, the duration of the conformity assessment can be kept low. Assuming the conformity assessment of your product turns out to be positive, URCA issues a type approval certificate with unlimited validity. Once homologation has been completed, there is no need to apply a country-specific label to your product prior to market launch. Our experienced team will be happy to assist you at any time with the smooth market launch for your product in the Bahamas.
