The telecommunications regulatory authority in South Africa, ICASA, wants telecom equipment using the line current to be first submitted to Safety certification. It means that before being accepted for type-approval by ICASA, these products shall first obtain the Letter of Approval (LoA) issued by the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS).
ICASA has not provided a briefing note on this matter yet. However, during the processing of some applications to the authority, we were asked to provide the LoA issued by the NCRS before the processing could continue.
This provision did not exist in the past since it was not formerly applied to pieces of equipment and the EMC test reports issued by ISO 17.025 accredited laboratories were enough to apply for the ICASA type-approval.
As a reminder, the processing of an NCRS LOA application lasts 120 working days. It is required for the following pieces of equipment:
Audio, video & similar electrical equipment ;
Household equipment (Power requiring devices/in use of motors and heating elements) ;
Information technology equipment ;
Power supplies equipment ;
Magnetically driven electrical tools ;
Transportable motor operated electrical tools ;
Electric tools for test, measurements, control & lab.
