News for Kenya
SRDs Exempt From Type Approval
Kenya’s Communications Authority recently introduced a new regulation on the use of Short Range Devices (SRDs). Accordingly, SRDs operating in the permitted frequency bands are now exempt from Type Approval and may be freely imported and sold in Kenya.
The new exemption includes, among other, SRDs operating at 13.56 MHz, 433—435 MHz, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands such as NFC tag/card readers, keyless vehicle entry systems, WiFi devices, etc. SRDs must however comply with the maximum permitted output powers as specified for each band; this currently follows the EU regulations.
The Type G electrical plug has three rectangular blades in a triangular pattern and has an incorporated fuse (usually a 3 amps fuse for smaller appliances such as a computer and a 13 amps one for heavy duty appliances such as heaters). British sockets have shutters on the live and neutral contacts so that foreign objects can’t be introduced into them.
