Saudi Arabia: CITC approval for WWAN units only
In the past the Saudi Arabia Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) accepted requests for approval of parts with WLAN/BT/RFID technology.
Currently, devices which are not cellular network telecommunication devices cannot get CITC approval, e.g. devices with BT, WLAN etc.
If a device includes a cellular module, the single WWAN module needs to get a CITC approval (e.g. LTE-module mounted in notebook). But also devices with integrated cellular functions like mobile phones and notebooks are defined as modules by CITC and need to apply for CITC approval.
- All wireless units (device or module) with direct connection to national telecommunication network will need a CITC approval.
