EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Wireless Telegraphy (Exemption) Regulations 2003 (S.I. 2003/74, as amended) (“the Principal Regulations”) to widen the classes of wireless telegraphy apparatus whose establishment, installation and use are exempted from the requirement to be licensed under section 8(1) of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006 (c.36).

Schedule 3 of the Principal Regulations is amended to extend licence exemptions to Long term evolution (LTE) radiotelephones, Worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMax) radiotelephones, radiotelephones used as part of the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics Games network, and wireless access terminals.

Interface requirements are published by OFCOM in accordance with Article 4.1 of Directive 1999/5/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on Radio Equipment and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment and the mutual recognition of their conformity. Copies of interface requirements referred to in these Regulations may be obtained from OFCOM at Riverside House, 2a Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 9HA and are available on the OFCOM website at http://www.ofcom.org.uk.

In making these Regulations, in relation to the exemption for LTE and WiMax radiotelephones, OFCOM is carrying out its functions so as to give effect to EU obligations contained in the Commission Implementing Decision 2011/251/EU of 18 April 2011 amending Decision 2009/766/EC on the harmonisation of the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz frequency bands for terrestrial systems capable of providing pan-European electronic communications services in the Community (OJ No L 106, 27.4.201, p9).

A full regulatory impact assessment of the effect that these Regulations will have on costs to business is available to the public from OFCOM’s website at http://www.ofcom.org.uk or from the OFCOM library at Riverside House, 2A Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 9HA (Tel: 020 7981 3000). Copies of this assessment have also been placed in the libraries of both Houses of Parliament
