In a statement signed on January 23, 2018, the Director General of the Cameroon Telecom Regulatory Agency (TRA), Philémon Zoo Zame (photo), announces that his services will initiate “in the coming days”, on the national territory, a campaign to identify and verify the approval of telecom equipment (mobile and fixed telephones, smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, WiFi equipment, etc.).
While promising sanctions to violators of the regulatory provision requiring sellers and other importers to have their equipment homologated before being placed on the market, the CEO of the TRA reminds that “the homologation is intended to guarantee the respect of the essential requirements, and compliance of equipment with conventional technical standards and specifications. ”
This certification, we learn, is carried out by the regulator, on the basis of the documents and samples provided by the sellers or importers of the equipment. In the event of compliance, at the end of the evaluation tests, the process ends with the issue of a certificate.
