FAQs >>Page 2
1.Is it at all possible to apply for ZICTA approval without using a locally registered company with ZICTA? Yes

2. Once a locally registered company applies for the type approval and obtains it, will other importers be able to use it automatically? From my understanding of the website, it seemed like the certificate cannot be shared and each company would need to apply for its own certificate. Once an item is approved, other companies can use it freely without having to apply for their own. The certificate will not be issued to the company that applied but to the approved equipment.

3. It seems that there are two different procedures (type approval and type acceptance) and we can proceed with one of them by filling one of the two applications forms. Is our understanding correct? Yes. Form 1 and appendix from 1B for Standard Type Approval and form 1 and form 1C for Type Acceptance.

4. We also understand that the equipment approved in the European Union or under the FCC can be type accepted because we think that they are Accredited Authorities. Is our understanding correct? Yes but you need to apply for type acceptance submitting proof such as certificates of approval issued by such bodies. In the interim, only EU Approval scheme qualifies for Type Acceptance while only FCC Part 15 certified products from the Americas are acceptable

5. If we decide to proceed with the type acceptance procedure, we understand that we don’t need to submit to ZICTA a test sample, just the test reports from the recognized laboratories. Right? Yes

6. However, for the type approval procedure is required a test sample. Can you tell me what kind of test sample is required (with SMA connector for conducted measurements or for radiated testing instead)? Submit the equipment you want to be type approved for ZICTA to test.

7. Could you kindly tell me how long the process takes since ZICTA receives the application package until the type approval certificate (under type approval procedure) is issued? Fifteen working days after our accounts section receipt the payment

8. Could you kindly tell me how long takes the process since ZICTA receives the application package until the equipment authorization (under type acceptance procedure) is issued? Five working days after our accounts section receipt the payment.

9. Type approval is only for products without existing approval from regulatory partners like FCC, CCK, TCRA, ICASA, and ETSI? Yes, such products will qualify for standard type approval in Zambia.

10. Type acceptance is only for products with existing approval from regulatory partners like FCC, CCK, TCRA, ICASA, ETSI? Yes, such products will qualify for type acceptance in Zambia. However, approved bodies by ZICTA will be published. In the interim, only EU Approval scheme qualifies for Type Acceptance (ETSI) while only FCC Part 15 certified products from the Americas are acceptable
