Type Approval for Rwanda

All Regions » Africa » Rwanda
We support you in placing your product on the Rwandan market. The Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA), based in Kigali, is responsible for the regulation of radio products and type approval in Rwanda. For the successful market introduction of your product in Rwanda, we support you on the one hand by providing a local representative. Due to the long-term cooperation with our local representatives, we are a well-established team and can therefore finish homologation projects for you in the best lead time. On the other hand we support you professionally in the administration of test samples as well as in the shipment to Rwanda. According to applicable regulations, RURA's conformity assessment is based on European (EU) standards for efficient use of the radio spectrum, electromagnetic compatibility and electrical safety. Therefore, no additional conformity tests need to be performed in the country. After successful homologation of your product, the authority will issue a type approval without a time limit. If you have any questions, please contact your expert IB-Lenhardt team.
