Algeria: New regulations for the type approval of telecommunications equipment

New rules have recently come into force for the type approval and market release of telecommunications equipment in Algeria. The Algerian ARPCE (Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Postal Services) announced among other things a reduction in processing time. For example, complete application documents are now processed within two months and approved accordingly if all requirements are met. The approval is then valid for three years. Samples must be submitted for processing and these must be described and marked accordingly.


Among other things, the manufacturer name, model type, serial number and IMEI code, country of origin or production and CE certification must be submitted to the authorities. In addition, a technical description or a data sheet as well as the operating instructions must accompany the sample. The entire application can be submitted digitally or in conventional form on paper or by post.

As part of the North African Maghreb, the official language in Algeria is Arabic. French plays an important role as a language of education, trade and communication. It is therefore advisable for companies and importers to use a service provider in the field of certification. This will ensure that the certification procedure is completed in a short time and that all communication with the Algerian authorities is handed over to the service provider. In addition, they have exact knowledge of all costs incurred in advance. MPR International – Africa Certification is recommended as a partner for your upcoming Africa certification. By outsourcing the certification, you can focus on your core competencies in research & development and production.
