  • MauritiusICTA Opens 6 GHz Band for WAS/RLAN

    On August 4, 2022, Information & Communication Technologies Authority of Mauritius (ICTA) published its decision No. ICTA/DEC/01/22 on allocation of additional spectrum in the 5945–6425 MHz frequency band for Broadband Wireless Access (WAS).

    The authority determines as follows:

    1. The 5945-6425 MHz frequency range is accessible for WAS/RLAN:
      • INDOOR LOW POWER (ILP) equipment restricted to indoor use only. ;Outdoor usage of ILP-devices (incl. road vehicles) is not authorised.
      • VERY LOW POWER (VLP) equipment for both indoor and outdoor use (apart from fixed outdoor use). Usage of VLP-devices on radio-controlled models is proscribed.
    2. The 5945-6425 MHz frequency range is to be used by WAS/RLAN devices on a non-exclusive, non-interference and non-protected basis.
    3. WAS/RLAN equipment is to comply with the technical conditions and standardisation requirements mentioned in the annex to the paper.

  • New ZealandRSM Updates Radiocommunications Regulations for SRDs

    Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) of New Zealand has newly updated the General User Radio Licence for Short Range Devices. According to the latest version of the paper which came into affect on August 1, 2022, there are several crucial changes:

    1. Clarification on frequency bands for the use of Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) and of Transmit Power Control (TPC). DFS and TPC can be only applied to the frequency band of 5250–5350 MHz within 5150–5350 MHz range.
    2. Additional frequency range for WLAN in the 5925–6425 MHz band. Possible operating modes are as follows:
      • Indoors: 24dBm EIRP;
      • Indoors/Outdoors: 14dBm EIRP.
    3. 60 GHz devices can currently operate in the freuqency range of 57–71 GHz (increased permitted power: 25dBW EIRP). Previous requirements concerning “Indoor-Only Systems” have been also abolished.

  • BrazilANATEL Extends Deadline for Simplified Renewal Procedure

    On July 26, 2022, the National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) in Brazil published an official letter No. 265/2022 postponing the deadline for simplified renewal policy until October 31, 2022.

    For a renewal of a certificate of conformity, ANATEL intermittently waives submission of the following documents:

    • internal/external photos (only applicable if the device has undergone no modifications),
    • test reports (not applicable for devices which failed conformity assessment tests).

    The prior deadline was published in ANATEL's official Letter No. 233/2021.

  • KenyaUpdated RF Spectrum Guidelines for SRDs

    The Communication Authority of Kenya has recently renewd its guideleines concerning usage of rediofrequency spectrum for short range devices. The amended paper includes information on allocating spectrum for Wi-Fi 6E equipment in the following bands:

    Frequency Bands Power/Magnetic Field Spectrum access and mitigation Relevant Standard Notes
    5925 – 6425 MHz 23 dBm (200 mW) mean EIRP. Mean EIRP density for inband emissions – 10 dBm/MHz An adequate spectrum sharing mechanism shall be implemented for channel access and occupation ATU Recommendation on 6 GHz. Restricted to Low Power Indoor (LPI) use only Outdoor use (including in road vehicles) is not permitted.
    5925 – 6425 MHz 14 dBm (25 mW) EIRP

    Mean EIRP density for inband emissions 1 dBm/MHz.

    An adequate spectrum sharing mechanism shall be implemented for channel access and occupation.

    Very Low Power (VLP) Indoor and outdoor use. Use of drones is prohibited.

    Very Low Power (VLP) device is a portable device.

  • IsraelMoC Simplifies Market Access for Wi-Fi 6E Devices

    The Ministry of Communications (MoC) in Israel plans to allocate additional radiofrequency ranges for technology products imported into the country and used both for private and commercial purposes. Devices using Wi-Fi 6E technology are also included in the RF spectrum.

    Henceforth, the EU documents (EU DoC, EU Test Reports) are now acceptable for type approval in Israel. This is expected to facilitate import procedures. Detailed information on the adopted changes will be summed up and provided by the Ministry of Communication subsequently.

  • United KingdomGovernment Eases UKCA Markings

    The UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) is a mandatory conformity mark of the UK which replaces both CE and reverse epsilon markings. Manufacturers have to start using the UKCA marking until January 1, 2023.

    In order to lessen challanges in confrorming to the new UK Regulatory Regime, the Government of the United Kingdom has recently announced supporting measures for businesses which are adopting the UKCA marking:

    • Reducing re-testing costs for UKCA certification.
    • Abolishing need to re-test existing imported stock.
    • Continuing to accept spare parts onto the GB market.
    • Allowing manufacturers to affix the UKCA marking and to include importer information for products from EEA countries (in some cases Switzerland), on an accompanying document or label until December 31, 2025.
