In order to exercise in the Republic of Cyprus activities related with speed limitation devices, one needs to obtain an approval from the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works. The national legislation in the Republic of Cyprus foresees for the requirements for approval of all Nominated Technicians or Workshops who undertake the tasks and responsibilities associated with the installation, calibration, testing and inspection of speed limitation devices on vehicles.
