The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system will be introduced from the quarter-final stage of the Africa Cup of Nations.
The second leg of the African Champions League final was abandoned in May in a row over the absence of the technology when it had been scheduled to be used.
When the referee disallowed an effort by Wydad Casablanca, they stormed off in protest that VAR had not been consulted, even though they had been told before the game that the system was not operational.
The referee of the first leg was banned for six months after he made controversial calls after consulting VAR. This was deemed, however, to be a knee-jerk reaction by CAF and the suspension of Gehad Grisha was later lifted.
CAF president Ahmad Ahmad said not using the VAR system in the opening rounds was a "measure of prudence”.
“Those countries that use VAR did not rush into it from the start. It's a technology that a lot of people don't completely use yet," he told reporters before the tournament.
