NATCOM introduce type approval labelling requirements

NATCOM introduce type approval labelling requirements
Sierra Leone’s regulator NATCOM have introduced labelling requirements for type approved equipment, as per Electronic Communications Type Approval Regulations 2020.
 
Consistent with Section 9 (2) of the Electronic Communications Regulations 2020, every supplier, importer, distributor or seller shall, where applicable, ensure that equipment offered for sale or for private use clearly has a type approval label containing the following: 
i. The logo  
ii. The product type/category
iii. A unique Type Approval Number 
 
When the equipment is too small to be affixed a label, the label should be part of the operating software or program known as “Regulatory Certification” this means it will be part of the documentations for that piece of equipment. Upon receipt of the Type Approval Certificate, every supplier, importer, distributor or seller shall affix the type approval label to the equipment. This will include the Type Approval Number (TAN) provided in the Type Approval Certificate. 
 
The sample of the labelling format is shown below: 
TAN: YYYY-PCN-UTAN 
Where: 
TAN= Type Approval Number 
YYYY= Year of Certification (Four digits) 
PCN= Product Category Number (Three digits) 
UTAN= Unique Type Approval Number (Four digits)
