Type Approval for Laos

All Regions » Asia » Laos
We support your successful market entry by assisting you in obtaining a certificate for Short Range Device Radio Transmission Equipment issued by the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MPT) based in Vientiane. The validity period of this certificate in Laos is one year. Before the 12 months period has passed, we will arrange a recertification for you in due time, if required. We will be happy to assist you in completing the mandatory documents. In Laos the conformity assessment is carried out according to European standards, so there is no need for certification-accompanying conformity tests. To keep the lead times of homologation projects in Laos short, we cooperate with a long-term local partner. Furthermore, no country-specific conformity label is required for the import into Laos, which further simplifies the market launch of your product. If you have any questions regarding the homologation of equipment or regulatory requirements in Laos, our motivated team will be happy to assist you.
