Type Approval for Cuba

The Republic of Cuba has developed and implemented its own conformity assessment system, which is partly based on international standards and includes certification and the possibility of local laboratory testing. The government agency responsible for approvals in Cuba is Ministerio de Comunicaciones (MINCOM). Depending on the product specifications, which determines the need for laboratory testing, we can find an individual path to approval in the shortest possible time. We professionally support our clients in the management of test items (selection, preparation and shipment) and, depending on the need, communication with local laboratories. We have a detailed knowledge of the local requirements in the Caribbean countries and provide you with competent support for market access in Cuba.
