New Approval Procedures for Telecommunications and Radio Equipment

The Research and Studies Telecommunications Centre (CERT) of Tunisia has published new approval procedures for telecommunications terminal equipment and radio equipment.

CERT is a public service provider under the Tunisian Ministry of Information Technology and Communication.

In the new rules published in Decree 48-2020, new acts related to the facilitation of type approval procedures, product importation, and commercialization of telecommunications terminal equipment and radio equipment were announced.

The main changes are:

  • Type approval certificates are now valid indefinitely (previously certificates were issued with 3 year validity periods)
  • Previously issued certificates can be renewed or reissued with permanent validity
  • Encryptions certification will be issued by CERT and no longer issued by ANCE (National Digital Certification Agency)
  • Encryption certificates will be a single certificate covering both RF/Telecom and encryption
  • The approval process is now 1 - 3 weeks.

CERT operates with the aim of sustaining development of the telecommunications sector and to support activities of the major ICT players.
