Type Approval Guidelines - Consultation

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

This consultation is released in relation to the “Draft Type Approval Guidelines for Radio Equipment and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment” drafted by ictQATAR on 13 June 2010.

The objective of this consultation document is to give manufacturers and importers of RTTE, operators and other interested individuals an opportunity to respond and contribute to the formulation of an improved Type Approval regime. It is in the interests of ictQATAR to ensure that the new Type Approval regime is one that has the support of all stakeholders involved in the run up to the planned opening up of the market for importation and commercialization of RTTE. This consultation follows the public consultation on draft Type Approval Policy launched by ictQATAR on 26 April 2009, (which subsequently led to the release of the final Type Approval policy on 30 August 2009), and is designed to review only a subset of specific points.
