See DA-12 -1570. Basically: 1. Whether the Commission should provide for a limited expansion of license eligibility that would permit some wireless microphone and other low power auxiliary station users, which currently operate in the TV broadcast spectrum on an unlicensed basis, to operate on a licensed basis under the Part 74 rules applicable to low power auxiliary stations (LPAS); and 2. What steps the Commission should take to promote more efficient use of this spectrum by wireless microphones Deadline for responses: November 25 th Agenda

doc. : IEEE 802. 11 -12/1343 r 0 Revision of the R&TTE Directive •

doc. : IEEE 802. 11 -12/1343 r 0 Revision of the R&TTE Directive • • The Commission proposes: – to strengthen the level of compliance with the Directive, ensuring that citizens have access to radio products which operate without interference. For example, market surveillance and customs officers could better check the safety of products using more effective tools. – to clarify the directive, in particular clearly spelling out the obligations for every market player, be it manufacturer or importer, and also by limited adaptations of scope. – to simplify the directive, including through suppression of notification of certain products and other administrative obligations. The new directive would be aligned with the New Legislative Framework for products (IP/11/1385), which makes the overall regulatory framework for products more consistent and easier to apply. The proposal would also introduce some specific requirements, such as: – ensuring that software can only be used with radio equipment after the compliance of that particular combination of software and the radio equipment has been demonstrated; – interoperability with accessories such as chargers, and/or work via networks with other radio equipment Agenda

doc. : IEEE 802. 11 -12/1343 r 0 5 GHz in China • • • On September 27 th, the MIIT Radio Regulation Bureau (also known as the State Radio Regulatory Committee, or SRRC) began soliciting comments of allocation for use of three critical bands of 5 GHz spectrum in China. The comment period for this decision ends October 11 th. Spectrum bands 5150 - 5250 MHz, 5250 - 5350 MHz and 5470 - 5725 MHz will be allocated for unlicensed use for wireless communication equipment in China within specified technical parameters. No specific radio frequency approval will be necessary for devices operating in these three frequencies. Spectrum bands 5150 - 5250 MHz and 5250 - 5350 MHz will be unlicensed only for indoor use. Devices operating in 5250 - 5350 MHz and 5470 - 5725 MHz will be required to use TPC functionality. See details in the References Agenda
