Type Approval for Ghana

All Regions » Africa » Ghana
Type approvals in Ghana are regimented by the National Communications Authority (NCA). This is based on European standards for smooth market access. We work with a local representative who cooperates directly with NCA in Accra, enabling certificates of conformity to be obtained in the shortest possible time. The homologation process in Ghana does not require any laboratory tests. The certificates have an unlimited validity period, which minimizes the effort required by the manufacturer to obtain a certificate of conformity. There are additional requirements for product labeling, which we can advise you on. If you have any questions regarding the conformity requirements in West Africa, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our competent and trained team will be happy to help you with product certification and the applicable standards.
