Basic IT Equipment, Laptops, Watches are not Subjected to Approvals: PTA

PTA has recently announced that basic IT equipment and devices are not liable for type approvals, such devices include goods which are used in daily life either personal or commercial use.

The equipment which are not subject to type approval include Personal Computers, Laptops, WiFi Enabled PCs (NON-SIM), SmartWatches (NON-SIM).

The authority also removed a number of fundamental Networking Equipment which is used essentially for Information Communications Technology applications varying from small to large scale companies. These equipment include Switches, Firewalls, Servers (File Server, Database Servers etc.) and Storage devices.

PTA also granted an exemption to GPS Devices, RFID/Bluetooth/NFC devices whose utility is being promoted for various applications especially in the small and large scale businesses in different sectors.

The equipment mentioned above do not require any NOC (Non-Objection Certificate) from PTA for importing from different countries. However, the procedure of customs is applied on their imports.

“Custom level importers will now be able to import such items and won’t require any certificate.”, reported by ProPakistani

However, the authority should also come forward to release various other devices used with SIM’s to promote the IT Culture and Literacy also business in Pakistan.

The initiative taken by PTA will reduce the cost and will lead to affordable access to technological equipment for the masses which will certainly benefit in aiding the socio-economic development of the country.
