Type Approval for Botswana

All Regions » Africa » Botswana
Type approval procedures in Botswana are regulated by the Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority, or BOCRA for short.
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 Gaborone, whereby certificates can be acquired within a short processing time.

The homologation process in Botswana 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 an unlimited validity period.
Approved products are subject to mandatory labeling.

If you have any questions regarding the conformity requirements in Botswana or other countries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our competent and trained team will be glad to assist you with product certification and applicable standards.
