Mauritius: New framework for ICT equipment market entry

Mauritius ICTA published a new framework [Clearance_Regulations2019] for entry of ICT Equipements into the Mauritian Market.  The new framework enters in force as per 1st October 2019

Importers are required to:

1- Be a fully licensed dealer in order to trade in ICT market.

2- Apply online for a clearance authorization for each import of ICT equipments

3- Import products that comply with the new published List of technical standards

4- Be in the possession of all relevant compliance documentation.


ICTA  also listed  ICT  products into 7 categories depending on applicable scheme. I will focus on those imports for commercial purposes in this post for seek of clarity. Those lists are:

  • List C: For this list, Equipment is cleared based on a declaration of compliance signed by Importer…

List C

  • List B: Equipment that still need Type Approval Certificate to Enter the Market

List B

  • List G: Equipment in this list do not need Type approval nor Clearance authorization
