Type Approval for Benin

All Regions » Africa » Benin
Type approval procedures in Benin are regulated by the Autorité Régulation des Communications Electroniques et de la Poste (ARCEP). The conformity requirements are basically identical to those of the European Union. (Declaration of conformity according to EU directive 2014/53/EU). IB-Lenhardt AG is supported by a local partner, who directly cooperates with the authority in Porto Novo, whereby certificates can be acquired within a short processing time. The homologation process in Benin does not require local laboratory testing or contact with local representatives. However, a product sample can be requested from the authority for viewing. Certificates have a limited validity period, currently five years and approved products are subject to mandatory labeling. If you have any questions regarding the conformity requirements in Africa, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our competent and trained team will be glad to assist you with product certification.
