Country updates

June 2023

The Communications and Media Commission (CMC) has issued a new regulation specifying the types of communication equipment and information technology devices that shall be type approved to ensure that they comply with the legal, technical and safety requirements prescribed, and with the national schedule of frequencies, before their importation, use or sale.

May 2023

A recent development in the regulatory landscape of Iraq's telecommunications industry has been the issuance of a new regulation by the Communications and Media Commission (CMC) just a week ago.

Below are the main changes included in this regulation:

- A new type of type approval certificate is issued called a "family certificate". This certificate is designed to cover several models of equipment that have the same technical specifications but differ in their model names. 

- The type approval certificate is granted to any telecommunications equipment (wireless devices and wired devices) according to the type of device shown and conditions stipulated in this regulation.

This means that manufacturers and importers of telecommunications equipment must comply with the requirements set out in the regulation in order to obtain the necessary type approval certificate.

As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contactCSIA for up to date information.

CSIA can also provide supporting services should your company not be able to meet country specific requirements such as a local representative, local certificate holder, translating documents into the native language, etc. Contact CSIA at (503) 489 8006 or for all your FCC certification, CE certification, Industry Canada and International Approval needs.
