Due to internal reorganization of the regulatory authority „Agence de Régulation des Télécommunications (ART)", all type approval requests are currently on hold.
There was no official statement from the authority and we don't know long the process will take.
But our local partners will inform us when the authority resumes work

New lead timesfor Type Approval
Due to internal reorganization of the Authority and the responsibilities, the Type Approval procedure work flow is delayed by additional one month.
Now the whole lead time takes approximate three months.
The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
The Type E electrical plug has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart and a hole for the socket’s male grounding pin. The Type E socket is different to the Type F socket which is standard in other continental European countries, such as Germany. The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to work with sockets E and F and has grounding clips on both sides (to work with Type F sockets) and a female contact (to accept the grounding pin of the type E socket). Type E plugs are rated 16 amps.
