Equipment Registration

Service Description

This service involves registering and approving telecom equipment in the UAE before offering and selling them in the UAE market, through submitting the required information and documents in the Type Approval System.

The service requirements vary based on the scheme of the registered device. Moreover, the types of devices are specified for each scheme according to their risk level and divided into three schemes as follows:

-          Scheme 1: Lowest risk, does not require technical test

-          Scheme 2: medium risk, requires technical test sometimes

-          Scheme 2: highest risk, requires technical test

The types of telecommunications devices according to their schemes can be viewed in the "Service Privacy" section.
