Type Approval for Kenya

All Regions » Africa » Kenya
Type Approvals in the Republic of Kenya are regulated by the Communications Authority of Kenya situated in Nairobi. The authority manages the whole process of conformity assessment which makes it safe and transparent for an applicant. The conformity assessment system in Kenya accepts European documentation for further trouble-free market access.

Homologation procedure in Kenya is more complicated than in most of African countries. Depending on regulations and type of equipment, the authority may require product samples for further examination or simply issue an exemption letter. Validity period of conformity documents can be unlimited (exemption letters) or limited to 6 months (certificates of conformity) after which the authority issues an unlimited certificate automatically. However, there are no additional requirements on product labeling.

IB-Lenhardt AG has a cooperation agreement with a local entity which communicates directly with the responsible office at the authority that allows to acquire conformity documents in the short possible time.

In case of any issues, we are ready to support you with any inquiry regarding conformity requirements in African countries. Our competent and skilled team is keen to oblige you with product certification and applicable standards.
