Namibia updates

May 2018

On May 8, 2018, CRAN released a Statement of interpretation of the definition of “telecommunications equipment” in the Government Gazette.  Telecommunication equipment has been defined as: “communications or networking equipment with an interface to public network or wide area network services and includes but not limited to telecommunications terminal equipment, information technology equipment (including but not limited to a digital set-top box decoder), radio communication equipment powered by means of an internal or external electrical AC/DC energy source and electronic communications network equipment.”  The Government Gazette includes “Schedule 1” that shows common product types now exempted from type approval in Namibia.

Contact CSIA for a list of products exempt from mandatory type approval in Namibia as listed in Schedule 1 as well as the current type approval process for Namibia.


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