News for Nigeria
New procedure for Type approval
IB-Lenhardt AG was informed about updates in the Type Approval procedure concerning among others, sample requirements, familiy approval and billing method of the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC).
Family applications: The NCC now accept applications for models that come in series and or families. In that case, the product should share the same test report.
Samples: One (1) sample should be provided for notebooks, tablets and mobile phones. For any other equipment type, a sample can be requested at any time. Samples won't be returned by the Commission.
Processing time: If the complete documentation is received without errors, then on average it should take four (4) to eight (8) weeks for the applicant to receive a Certificate/Grant, assuming approval is granted and the invoice is paid.
Billing: The billing is subsidized as follows:
There is a group price for the whole family/series;
In addition to this group price, each device of the family/series is billed at 20% of the group price
Samples Now Mandatory for Type Approval
So far Nigeria's NCC had not requested samples but beginning 2015-01-01 samples will be mandatory cell phones, tablets and notebooks. For other products Nigeria's NCC reserves the right to request samples.
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 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.
