Zambia updates

August 2023

The regulation on type approval previously published by Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) has become mandatory after the end of its transitional period.

October 2018

Due to the number of products being imported and sold in Zambia without the required regulatory label and approval, starting in January 2019, the agency will be sending agents to the customs stations to inspect packages/products to ensure they have been approved and bear the required labeling. Products without proper approval and markings could be subject to confiscation, fines, etc. It is very important to approve all your products prior to importation.

Contact CSIA for more information on approvals in Zambia.

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) 482-9289 or for all your FCC certification, CE certification, Industry Canada and International Approval needs.
