Type Approval for Samoa

All Regions » Oceania » Samoa
Conformity assessment in the Independent State of Samoa is based on the American (FCC) and European (EU) Standards. Office of the Regulator (OOTR) situated in Apia is the responsible authority which manages the process of issuance of conformity certificates and examination of product samples which are the two mandatory parts of the local conformity assessment scheme.

IB-Lenhardt AG applies for homologation certificates directly to the authority which eliminates the necessity for a local representative and drastically reduces time period needed for Samoa market access. We assist our clients professionally with samples management (selection, preparation and shipping) and collection of documentation which is to undergo conformity assessment procedure.

As a result of successful examination of samples and documents, a certificate of conformity will be issued by the responsible authority. Certificates have no expiration date and approved equipment is not subject to labeling.

Ensure that your device meets the local requirements and regulations. You can rely on our expertise and perennial practical experience in global market access.
