Like for Afghanistan, as reported in the last (August) issue of this newsletter; although everything may these days appear to be chaotic also in Syria, in certain technical areas the authorities seem to have due regulatory control.
The Syrian Telecommunications & Post Regulatory Authority (SY-TPRA) recently announced a new regulation for telecom products to be marketed and used in Syria. The regulation is designated No.43 and is apparently so far available in Arabic only. According to its Article 2, it applies to all types of radio- and telecom terminal equipment. It is in effect from 1 September this year. The new regulation covers amongst other the following topics:
For new applications, also proof of safety testing to the risk based standard IEC 62368 is required.
For renewal of already approved products, the already submitted test reports based on the standard IEC 60950-1 or IEC 60065 will be accepted without new testing.
For more information or assistance with type approval of telecom equipment for Syria, please contact Tom.Tidwell@nemko.com or Hatim.Afaneh@nemko.com
