EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations give effect to Commission Decision 2017/1483(4) amending Decision 2006/771/EC on harmonising of the radio spectrum for use by short-range devices and repealing Decision 2006/804/EC. The Regulations exempt the establishment, installation and use of such devices which comply with certain terms, provisions and limitations, from the requirement to be licensed under section 8(1) of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006 (c 36). The Regulations amend the Wireless Telegraphy (Amendment and Exemption) Regulations 2010 (the “2010 Regulations”). The Regulations also revoke the Wireless Telegraphy (Radio Frequency Identification Equipment) (Exemption) Regulations 2005 and the Wireless Telegraphy (Radio Frequency Identification Equipment) (Exemption) (Amendment) Regulations 2007.

The amendments change the Interface Requirements which are referred to in the 2010 Regulations. The Interface Requirements are published by Ofcom and available to the public on its official website at https://www.ofcom.org.uk/ and from its library at Riverside House, 2a Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 9HA.

A full regulatory impact assessment of the effect that these Regulations will have on cost 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. Copies of this assessment have also been placed in the library of the House of Commons.
