Type Approval for Burkina Faso

All Regions » Africa » Burkina Faso
The Autorité de Régulation des Communications Électroniques et des Postes (ARCEP) with headquarters in Ouagadougou is responsible for type approval of radio products in Burkina Faso. To introduce your product to the market in Burkina Faso, we support you by providing you with a local representative. For the conformity assessment ARCEP relies on European (EU) standards, therefore no conformity tests have to be performed on site. After successful homologation the authority issues a Radio Equipment Radio Equipment approval with the local representative as certificate holder. The validity period is 5 years. After the expiration of these 5 years, a renewal of the original certificate can be obtained with the support of the local representative. No country specific conformity label is required prior to the launch of your product. If you have any questions, please contact your IB-Lenhardt team.
