Type Approval for Malawi

All Regions » Africa » Malawi
In order to facilitate your successful market access in Malawi, IB-Lenhardt AG supports you throughout the entire approval process, starting with the compilation of the application documents based on European standards, followed by the acceptance of the final certificate and finally advising you on national label requirements.

The regulatory requirements of type approvals in the Republic of Malawi are defined by the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA), based in Blantyre.

In Malawi, the conformity assessment follows applicable European (EU) standards for efficient use of the radio spectrum, electromagnetic compatibility, and electrical safety; therefore, no additional local testing is required. There is no requirement for a local representative or a national conformity label. Due to the facts mentioned above, we can reduce the duration of equipment type approval in direct cooperation with MACRA for the homologation of your product in Malawi.

After successful examination of the relevant documents, MACRA issues a Type Approval Certificate which is valid for an unlimited period of time.

If you have any questions regarding the homologation of equipment in Malawi, our experienced team will be happy to assist you.
