January, 2022

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) published the updated "Type Approval Technical Standards Regulations, 2021" in the Gazette of Pakistan on September 13, 2021.

Key changes are:

1) Changes to the exempt devices list:

  • Networking equipment (switches, firewalls, servers, storage devices)

  • Laptops/desktops (non-sim based only)

  • GPS only devices

The following devices were removed from the list of exempted technologies and therefore, are subject to mandatory type approval:

• Tablet PCs with WiFi only (Non-Sim based devices)

All Wifi, Bluetooth and RFID equipment now require Pakistan Type Approval.

SRDs are already subject to Pakistan Type Approval.
