What is Sri Lanka - TRCSL Vendor License/Registration and the Process for this Registration

Updated: Feb 28

All importers in Sri Lanka wishing to import Radio Telecommunication Equipment (RTTE) into the country must first acquire TRCSL Type Approval for the equipment.

In order to get TRCSL Type Approval, the importer must first be locally registered with TRCSL and should have the TRCSL Vendor License Registration Number first. This registration provided by TRCSL is valid for one year and has to be renewed on yearly basis.

In the absence of this TRCSL Vendor License Registration Number, the importer cannot apply for TRCSL Type Approval and hence cannot import the RTTE into the country.

It is hence a critical requirement which should be known to all such importers that they should complete their TRCSL Vendor License Registration Number process on priority if they are looking to import Radio Telecommunication Equipment into Sri Lanka in the near or far future.

TRCSL Vendor License Registration application requires the following documents:

1. Letter of request for Vendor Licence

2. Dully filled application form

3. Copy of the Certificate of Incorporation

4. Copy of the Memorandum and Articles of Associations

5. Copy of the Form (20) or Business registration and names of the Board of Directors
