Dealer Licences

 

 
Dealer Licences are required for the importation and supply/sale of telecommunications and/or radiocommunications equipment. The Dealer Licence is issued by The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI). The type of Dealer Licence required depends on the type of equipment to be imported.

Two of these Dealer Licences (DTQ and DRQ) are issued and authorized by AITI whereas one (DSQ) is processed by AITI and authorized by the Broadcasting Unit of the Ministry of Communications (previously the Broadcasting Department of the Prime Minister’s Office).
 
Dealer Licenses are valid for one (1) year as from the date of issue. Reminder slips will be sent to dealers at least two months before the expiry date of license.
