In December 2020, the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) issued the Short-range Devices (SRD) Radio Spectrum Guidelines. The guidelines specify rules for the usage of SRD in Egypt while also defining the technical parameters.
In March 2020 we already informed you about the introduction of 2 type approval schemes for applications in Egypt. Recently, the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) introduced 2 additional certification schemes and further clarified the requirements for each scheme:
The light scheme applies for ISO 17025 accredited manufacturers. Provided the manufacturer does not have an ISO 17025 accreditation, the factory location determines which approval scheme should be applied:
Australia, Canada, Japan, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, USA, Western Europe
Any other country, which is not listed
China and India
Please note: While the light and intermediate scheme follow roughly the same procedure, an application following the guided scheme will require a factory inspection of NTRA.
The National Telecom Regulatory Authority in Egypt has updated it's Type approval procedures in January:
The light scheme is applicable for ISO 17025 certified manufacturers in EMC and Safety scope and/or devices originate from a factory outside of India and China, whereas the tight scheme should be used for approvals where the above mentioned criteria doesn't fit. The documents for both schemes were updated and further details added
In addition, the list of accredited labs in India and China for light and tight scheme was updated.
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 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.
