Israel Publishes Amendment to Telecommunications Order
On January 27, 2019, the Ministry of Communication (MoC) of Israel enacted an amendment to the Telecommunications Order (Bezeq and Broadcasting) (Exemptions from Certification and Trade Licensing) 5769-2019. The document is to reduce the barriers and significantly facilitate the import of electronic products for personal or family use.
The following consumer electronics goods are in the scope of this Order:
Computer peripherals (mouses, keyboards or speakers)
Computer screens, photocopiers
Home or office video projectors
Tablet PCs, handheld computers, laptops or tablets
TV, TV receiver set-top boxes, TV tuners, desktop computers, radio receivers
The Order amends the provisions of the Telecommunications Order 5572-2012.
The main amendments are as follows:
Section 2 now refers to the RED Directive instead of the original R&TTE Directive. This means that the terminal equipment which meets the requirements of the RED Directive does not require type approval
Section 8A is amended so that importers who have received an exemption certificate must submit their reports on the equipment imported in the first quarter and third quarter of each year (instead of the original quarterly basis)
Section 8C, which required the label “product not new” on imported used products, is repealed.
The official document is available here.
