Notice of Ofcom’s proposal to make the Wireless Telegraphy (Ultra-Wideband Equipment) (Exemption) Regulations 2015

  • Start: 17 December 2014
  • Status: Statement published
  • End: 20 January 2015

This document advises that Ofcom has gone ahead and made the Wireless Telegraphy (Ultra-Wideband Equipment) (Exemption) Regulations 2015.

These amend the existing Wireless Telegraphy licence exemption criteria for Ultra-Wideband (UWB) devices. UWB Devices use very large bandwidth so are able to transmit high data rates over short distances but transmit at very low powers so not to interfere with other devices.

The regulations will implement a European Commission Decision on UWB devices that harmonises the technical parameters for equipment across all Member States. The regulations come into force on 25 March 2015.
