Innovations in the Type Approval Process in Botswana

The demand for products from the radio and telecommunications sector is increasing in Africa. Companies from all over the world, but especially from Asia, are interested in selling their products to the African market.

Radio and telecommunications products require a Radio Type Approval. Each African country has their own system and authority responsible for the approval.



Changes to the process of the approvals are constantly improved. The responsible authority BOCRA in Botswana (Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority), for example, has now announced some changes. In the future there will be no more expiration dates on the approval certificates. In the past, the license was only valid for one year, but this will no longer be the case. Instead, you will find the words “unlimited” or “permanent” on the certificate. However, this change only applies to newly issued certificates. All previous certificates must be submitted to the authority so that they can issue the new permanent certificate.

Adjustments can still be submitted to the authority.

The numerous markets in Africa are developing quickly and offer many opportunities. The certification of telecommunications and radio products is particularly relevant in Africa.
