News for Mauritius
Addition to News from 2020-01-21 ICTA released new Directives
Please be informed that we gained additional information regarding ICTA's new Directive from October 2019.
As we informed in January 2020, ICTA (Information & Communication Technologies Authority) in Mauritius released a directive that short range devices for Transport and Traffic Telematics, such as Automobile sensors and Keyless entry systems, are exempted from Type Approval.
The ICTA categorized ICT equipment in 7 categories: List A-G. Short range devices are now Category C devices and therefore subject to a Declaration of compliance issued by local licensed dealers. At the first step local importers need to register at the ICTA as local licensed dealers. With our support, they are able to issue a DoC on basis of the technical information. This DoC is crucial for getting an import clearance.
According to the authority the certificates acquired previously in Mauritius cannot be used for import to Mauritius anymore as the local licensed dealer needs to apply for import clearance for every shipment individually.
We'll gladly support you in getting your import clearance. Please don't hesitate to contact us.
ICTA in Mauritius released a directive that short range devices for Transport and Traffic Telematics, such as Automobile sensors and Keyless entry systems are exempted from Type Approval. This directive became effective in 2019-10-01.
The authority has created 6 categories (List A-F) of ICT equipment. According to the new directive, Short range devices belong to Category C and therefore are subject to a Declaration of compliance by local licensed dealers to obtain an import clearance.
Furthermore, there will be no type approval certificates anymore. Type approved equipment will be added to the list of type approved equipment on the authority ‘s website.
The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
The Type G electrical plug has three rectangular blades in a triangular pattern and has an incorporated fuse (usually a 3 amps fuse for smaller appliances such as a computer and a 13 amps one for heavy duty appliances such as heaters). British sockets have shutters on the live and neutral contacts so that foreign objects can’t be introduced into them.
