Sri Lanka Publishes New Type Approval Regulation for R&TT Equipment

The GMA Consult Group would like to remind our subscribers that the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) updated the Type approval procedure of Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) in December 2020. Thus, the issued certificates will be valid only for 6 months. It is necessary to reapply for approval procedure to get access to the market of Sri Lanka within this period.  

Please, note that if the product has already been Type Approved by the TRCSL, you can apply under simplified procedure. It means that there is no need to provide test reports. However, a representative sample would be required.

The main changes in the Regulations concern the following:  

  1. Type Approval fees;
  2. Quantity of samples: the TRCSL can request up to 2 samples and keep them for 2 years;
  3. Mandatory labeling requirements for all equipment approved by TRC. However, the label requirements become mandatory from June 16, 2021. Please, note that the label must be permanently affixed on the packaging of R&TTE and it can be obtained only from the TRCSL with an additional fee;
  4. The importation of certain types of R&TTE (to be determined by the Commission from time to time) may be exempted from Type Approval. In this case, you need to get an exempt letter;
  5. Submitted test reports must be issued no later than within 3 months from the submission day by an accredited test lab. However, if test reports older than 3 months the documents require a declaration of validity from a test lab;
  6. The validity of the certificate and the exempt letter were extended up to 4 years;
  7. The certificate holder can be only a local company that has the telecommunication license.
