Licence Exemption of Wireless Short Range Radio Devices
Ofcom has decided that short range devices (SRDs) should use a new frequency band in future – 10.575 to 10.6 GHz, instead of the band they currently use, 10.675 to 10.699 GHz. (SRDs are various radio devices designed to operate over short range and at low power levels.) In order to implement its decision, Ofcom will need to make licence-exemption regulations under section 8 of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006.
Following any representations from interested parties, Ofcom expects to publish a draft of the regulations by spring 2013. A statement on the decision is available online and can be found here.
