Resumption of Type Approval Process
Following a three year hiatus, Niger regulator ARTP has resumed Type Approval processing. The major changes from prior regulations and proceedings are:
Samples are required for 2G, 3G, 4G and personal computers
Type Approval certificates replace approval letters
New validity period of 10 years for Type Approval certificates
An original DoC may be required for approval
Type Approval Procedures
The Autorité Nationale de Regulation des Telecommunications (ARTP), Niger’s Regulatory Authority, published new information regarding their Standard vs Simplified Procedure for Type Approvals:
The Simplified procedure is only possible in case a Certificate of Conformity has been issued by recognized Conformity Assessment Bodies (CAB) or Regulatory Authorities. In all other cases, the Standard procedure is mandatory. At present, only the Standard procedure is in place, however the ARTP is currently working on agreements with Regulatory Authorities and CABs to get the Simplified procedure established.
When a device has been approved, following information must appear on its label:
Approval date and number;
Identification of the model, lot or serial number;
Manufacturer or supplier name
Type Approvals Resumed
ARPT (Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications and Post of Niger) will resume Type Approval, following a hiatus of two years. Additionally, ARPT have announced the following changes to approval procedures:
Four approval request forms must be completed by the manufacturer.
Two samples must be submitted. Samples will be returned to the applicant at their own expense within six months after approval or rejection.
The application license fee must be paid before the submission of the projects.
The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly. Type B plugs are rated at 15 amps.
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 D electrical plug has three large round pins in a triangular pattern. Type M plugs are often used alongside Type D plugs for larger appliances and as a result, some sockets work with both Type D and Type M plugs. Type D plugs are rated 5 amps.
The Type E electrical plug has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart and a hole for the socket’s male grounding pin. The Type E socket is different to the Type F socket which is standard in other continental European countries, such as Germany. The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to work with sockets E and F and has grounding clips on both sides (to work with Type F sockets) and a female contact (to accept the grounding pin of the type E socket). Type E plugs are rated 16 amps.
The Type F electrical plug (also known as a Schuko plug) has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart. It is similar to the Type E plug but has two earth clips on the side rather than a female earth contact. The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to work with sockets E and F and has grounding clips on both sides (to work with Type F sockets) and a female contact (to accept the grounding pin of the type E socket). Type F plugs are rated 16 amps.
