Type Approval for Ethiopia

All Regions » Africa » Ethiopia
The Ethiopian Communications Authority (ECA) in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa regulates type approvals for radio products in Ethiopia. IB-Lenhardt AG works in direct contact with the authorities to obtain the type approval certificate for your wireless product. Thanks to our good relationship with the authority, we can guarantee that your type approval application will be processed quickly and reliably. We would be happy to support you with product certification and the applicable standards.
The Ethiopian Communications Authority accepts American (FCC) standards for the certification process, but also European (EU ETSI) standards. The authority's certificates are valid for two years and can be renewed shortly before they expire. Thanks to our many years of experience and qualifications in the homologation of products and worldwide market access, we enable you to have easy and cost-effective market access in Ethiopia.
If you have any questions about local conformity regulations, the professional and trained team at IB-Lenhardt AG is always at your disposal.
