ICASA released the draft for product certification

ICASA released the draft for product certification
June 22, 2021

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) released the draft regulation in the Government Gazette on March 31, 2021 which proposes a new type approval system based on three classes of equipment:

-Classification 1: Low Risk Equipment

-Classification 2: Medium Risk Equipment

-Classification 3: High Risk Equipment

Classification 1 equipment will be exempted from Equipment Authorization, while Class 2 and 3 equipment will be subject to the applicable conformity assessment approach. Under the new regulation, the conformity assessment approach will include two processes:

-Certification Application Process, resulting in a CoC

-Equipment Authorization Process, resulting in a Homologation Certificate

Prior ICASA approvals will continue to remain valid, however products with prior approval will need to comply with the updated ICASA compliance mark. Adoption of the regulation is expected in early 2022, with implementation in mid-late 2022.
