Type Approval is granted to a product that meets a minimum set of regulatory, technical and safety requirements. Generally, type approval is required before a product is allowed to be sold in a particular country, so the requirements for a given product will vary around the world.

Under Section 29 of the Pakistan Telecom Re-organization Act 1996 Telecommunication equipment type approval is the domain of Pakistan Telecommunication Authority which does not permit the installation of telecommunication equipment which has not passed the type approval test and subsequent conformance certificate.

Type approval applications are received in PTA for processing/ approval and subsequently on case to case basis the same are forwarded to FAB for comments / views.
