Regulatory Updates for Zambia
ZICTA published new Type Approval Guidelines
The Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority published new Type Approval Guidelines to replace the current guidelines, Type Approval Guidelines Rev5 09-2015. 

The main change is that ZICTA shall before revoking an approval, give written notice to the holder of a type approval certificate of its intention to revoke the approval.

ZICTA will give reasons for the intended revocation, and require the holder to show cause within a period of 7 days why the approval should not be revoked. ZICTA may recall from the market the model of the electronic communications apparatus whose approval has been revoked.

For any further questions on the new guidelines, please speak with your Eleos contact.
