The government of Israel has revised regulations considerably reducing the number of wireless products requiring a license from the Ministry of Communications before they can be imported into Israel.
The Communications ministry says that the revision will encourage competition in communications and smart home equipment. The exemption from the license requirement covers imports of peripheral computer equipment such as screens, laptop computers, tablet computers, electronic book readers, robot vacuum cleaners and more. Until many of these products were exempt from licensing requirements on personal imports only. The regulations have now been relaxed for commercial imports as well, which should benefit consumers.
