    Public notice

    Regulation Draft

  • PNG publishes a notice

    NICTA *The National Information & Communications Technology Authority* of Papua New Guinea made an announcement with respect to the type approval of ICT equipment. 

    It targets importers, distributors, and vendors of telecommunication, radio communication, and broadcasting equipment. 

    NICTA centers special attention to the fact that equipment must pass the type approval procedure prior to its marketing in Papua New Guinea. 

    The process is required to confirm that the equipment meets minimum regulatory and technical requirements. The type approval procedure reviews the following:

    • absence of interference in public communication networks

    • interfacing between customer equipment and ICT networks and interconnection between the networks

    • correspondence to national and international standards recognized by NICTA

    • safety aspects regarding the emissions from radio devices

    That strengthens the post-market surveillance and decreases the number of unsafe products on the market. 

    Pursuant to the MOU signed with the PNG Customs, importers must provide a NICTA-issued Type Approval Certificate and shipment documentation to PNG Customs for customs clearance purposes.

Type I Plug
Type I Sock Type I Plug Type I Sock

The Type I plug has two flat pins in a V-shape as well as a grounding pin. A version of the plug, which only has the two flat pins, exists as well. The Australian plug also works with sockets in China. Australia’s standard plug/socket system is rated 10 amps but a plug/socket configuration rated 15 amps also exists, although the ground pin is wider. A standard 10 amp plug will fit into a 15 amp socket but not the other way around.
