Type Approval for Zambia

All Regions » Africa » Zambia
Type approval procedures in Zambia are regulated by the Zambia Informations and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA). The conformity requirements are basically identical to those of the European Union and the Declaration of conformity according to EU directive 2014/53/EU. We work directly with the authority in Lusaka, so certificates can be acquired in a short processing time. The homologation process in Zambia does not require local laboratory testing or contact with local representatives. However, a product sample can be requested from the authority for viewing. Certificates have an unlimited validity period and approved products are subject to mandatory labeling. If you have any questions regarding the conformity requirements in Africa, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our competent and trained team will be glad to assist you with product certification and applicable standards.
