The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) has shut down due to a COVID-19 quarantine, causing delays in the issuance of type approval certificates.
The TRCSL employees are currently working from home due to a national quarantine on governmental bodies.
The impacts of the quarantine are as follows:
- TRCSL will only issue temporary, digital type approval certificates until further notice - temporary approval will be changed to permanent once normal business resumes.
- Samples are not accepted - any equipment which requires a sample for approval will be delayed.
- Type approval lead time has been extended.
