Communication and Information Technology Regulatory Authority (CITRA) in Kuwait will now be responsible for granting Type Approvals, which were previously sub-managed by The Ministry of Communications (MoC); all new applications will be on hold until the new authority internal procedures are in place, and delays are expected for pending applications. No changes to the process are expected, and MoC certificates previously emitted will remain valid until their expiry. Importation may continue with certificates that expire during this period of transition.

Update 6 June 2016: CITRA is now issuing TA certificates.
