The Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA) has issued The Telecommunication Directive 2 of 2017 on 1 Dec 2017. This new directive amends the earlier dispositions taken by the Provision 3.12 of the Telecommunication Directive 1 of 2014.
For electronic devices with only the built in BT function, they will no longer be subject to approval in Mauritius.
As a result any importer or manufacturer will simply have to satisfy the requirements of the label and conformity to the standards applicable to his device as established in Mauritius.
January 2018 -
ICTA in Mauritius has updated the regulations governing type approval and addressing the requirements for licensed dealers in Mauritius. The updated regulation exempts certain BT and WiFi products and PABX systems from mandatory type approval. These newly exempted products are subject to market surveillance, and local dealers must hold compliance files (ETSI standards) on record.
