Importing "type-approved" 2,4 GHz radio equipment

Liaan van der Merwe posted this information on the SARFY list. It concerns direct import of types of radio equipment that have been approved locally by ICASA:

"...Just for interest sake I actually phoned ICASA and after friendly conversation with gentlemen the following was concluded: if you import for personal use, you can simply ask ICASA to send you letter that the radio is legal to use. (That is if the radio model has been approved already). but if you import to resell, you have to get it re-approved, even if been approved before.
There is that grey area of the radio's made before ICASA etc.. but that is different topic all together.
So import it.. phone ICASA, get the nod of approval and fly to you heart's content."

He goes on to say:

"... please just reiterate that this is what was told to me by 1 representative from ICASA via telephone conversation. I am really hoping someone else would phone them as well and confirm or negate these statements"
