Regulatory News dated Q2/2012

  • SAR Technical Requirements amended

    On 2012-06-25, the National Radio Research Agency (RRA) of South Korea amended the requirements for measurement and testing procedure of Specific Absorption Rate SAR, targeting among others portable wireless equipment used within 20cm of the human body.
    It shall come into force end of 2012. Details in Korean language can be found at http://www.rra.go.kr


  • LTE WiMax re-allocation

    The Singapore Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) is working on the re-allocation of spectrum bands available for 4G services:

    2.3 GHz and 2.5/2.6 GHz bands will expire in 2015.
    900 MHz and 1800 MHz band assignments will expire in 2017.
    Despite the fact that 4G services are currently running in the existing bands and therefore a conflict is arising at the development stage, IDA decided not to re-allocate 900 MHz bands for the time being.

    For the use of LTE or WiMax the below bands are under discussion:

    • 14 lots of paired spectrum (2x5 MHz per lot) in the 1800 MHz band;
    • 8 lots of paired spectrum (2x5 MHz per lot) in the 2.5 GHz band;
    • 6 lots of spectrum (10MHz per lot) in the 2.3 GHz and 2.5 GHz.

    Spectrum caps are suggested, of up to 2x45 MHz of spectrum in full for 1800 MHz and 2.5 GHz band paired categories. The consultation also suggest 2x20 MHz in the 2.5 GHz band, for which only new candidates may place a bid.

    In 2021, the 2.1 GHz spectrum for 3G mobile will expire.
    700/800 MHz spectrum is not expected to be longer available.


  • Updated Labelling Requirements for Radio Devices

    Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) recently revised its labeling regulations to accommodate smaller devices with size restrictions.

    More simplified labelling is allowed as below:

    1. Simplification of the Certification number - Under the prior scheme, the label code was comprised of the CAB code (first three digits), followed by reference to the category of the specified radio (WW) and a 10-digit certification number given by the CAB. Under the new scheme, the category of the specified radio (WW) is no longer required to be printed on the label and the certification number given by the CAB has dropped from 10 to 6 digits.
    2. Use of electronic label - For devices with a screen, such as a phone, the label can be displayed on the screen instead of being printed on a physical label on the device.

    These changes come in addition to another recent change which allows CABs to issue a single certification number to cover a product with multiple radios, where previously separate certification numbers would have been granted instead.
