Kuwait Regulatory Update

Dec 13, 2021 | Kuwait

The Communication and Information Technology Regulatory Authority (CITRA) of Kuwait announced a new regulation on type approval of telecommunications equipment.

The regulation outlines requirements and conditions for manufacturers of telecommunications equipment wanting access to the market of Kuwait. Thus, it is necessary to apply for approval within national technical standards approved by CITRA to show the compliance with the requirements to radio and telecommunication equipment.

Effective immediately, CITRA will issue type approval certificates for three years, a change from the previous annual approval requirement. This is indicated in Article 11 (Device Type Approval Certificate Validity) clause 1 of the new regulations.
