What are the types of equipment that would require approval in this country?


  • Most products using telecom technology such as WIFI, Bluetooth, cellular and satellite.


Do I need an in country local representative or local certificate holder?


  • A local representative is required.


Product with GPS cannot obtain a type approval unless the GPS is routed through a local server. 

This will be thru hosting the clients GPS application on their servers (integrated with their application).The clients product with GPS will transmit data to local servers and from the local servers to the clients final destination. Example is a telematics product with GPS. The GPS feed would need to go from the telematics product to local servers which in turn would transmit the data to the clients service center.

Note that products in a "system" that tracks location and sends the data out of the country are also not allowed. An example would be some kind of engine sensor with Bluetooth that sends that information to a telematics device on the vehicle that then sends all data (including GPS data ) out of the country.


As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contact CSIA 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  quotes@csiassoc.com for all your FCC certification, CE certification, Industry Canada and International Approval needs.
