Nepal - NTA Type Approval - Overview

Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) administers the Nepal - NTA Type Approval Process which is a mandatory requirement for Radio and Telecommunication Equipment prior to their import to Nepal (with exemptions as mentioned on this page below)

NTA Type Approval consists of two phases:
