Amendment to Minister for Economic Affairs and Communications Regulation No 118 of 1 December 2009 on ‘Technical requirements for radio equipment used on the basis of a frequency authorisation’
The draft lays down technical requirements for radio equipment used on the basis of frequency authorisation.
Specific technical requirements for radio equipment have been laid down in Annexes 1–8, which specify the radio frequency band used, channel spacing, radiation norms, modulation and preconditions for planning radio frequencies. The relevant harmonised standards have been presented; these are recommended for use in the conformity assessment of radio equipment. The informative part states the notification number received upon notification to the European Commission.
Annexes 1–8 to the draft Regulation lay down specific requirements for radio equipment, which consist of the normative and the informative parts. The normative part lays down the conditions and technical requirements (radio frequency band used, bandwidth, radiation norms, modulation) for the use of radio equipment and preconditions for planning radio frequencies. The informative part states relevant harmonised standards recommended for use in the conformity assessment and certification of radio equipment and states the notification number received upon notification to the European Commission.
The part concerning specific requirements has been divided into paragraphs for each type of equipment for radio communication services and short range devices, and its structure with regard to radio communication services and objectives for the use of radio frequency bands is in accordance with Electronic Communications Committee (ECC) Decision CEPT/ECC/DEC/(01)03 and the European Communications Office's (ECO) Frequency Information System.
Annexes 1–8 are in accordance with the radio interfaces form drawn up in 2008 by the Joint Working Group of the Telecommunications Conformity Assessment and Market Surveillance Committee (TCAM) and the Radio Spectrum Committee (RSC) of the European Commission.
