  • ICTA released new directives

    ICTA in Mauritius released a directive that short range devices for Transport and Traffic Telematics, such as Automobile sensors and Keyless entry systems are exempted from Type Approval. This directive became effective in 2019-10-01.

  • RoHS requirements mandatory - EAEU Customs Union

    Electrotechnical devices launched in the EAEU must undergo conformity assurance procedures staring from 01.03.2020 in order to confirm their compliance with the EAEU Technical Regulation 037/2016 - Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrotechnical and Radio-electronic Products.

    The above stated TR restricts the content of six substances (lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers) in electrotechnical and electronic devices. In generally, the concentration of cadmium may not exceed 0.01 % by weight in homogeneous materials used in electrotechnical and radio-electronic products. The other five substances may not exceed 0.1 wt %.

    EAEU TR 037/2016 considers devices with respect to the protection of human life and health and the environment and in order to prevent actions misleading consumers/users of electrotechnical and radio-electronic devices.

    EAEU TR 037/2016 is harmonized with technical requirements of the European Union, in particular with Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2). Nevertheless, some regulations, first of all those related to the scope of application, are left at the level of repealed Directive 2002/95/EС (RoHS 1). This decision was taken since the member states ofthe Customs Union hadn't have any national requirements restricting the content of hazardous substances in electrotechnical and radio-electronic products.

    EAEU TR 037/2016 applies to household appliances and devices, IT equipment, telecommunication facilities, lighting and office equipment, electrical tools and electrical music instruments, sports and leisure equipment, gambling and vending machines, cash registers, cable products, protective cutout devices, fire/security detectors and other products.

    Thus, these products may be manufactured and launched in the EAEU countries without a conformity assessment and documents confirming their compliance with EAEU TR 037/2016 until 1 March 2020.
