CountryUpdate
IndiaThe Department of Telecommunications (DoT) of India has published the National Frequency Allocation Plan – 2022 (NFAP 2022), which is updated to be in line with ITU’s Radio Regulations 2020. The NFAP 2022 contains updates such as:

– Including the frequency bands 867-868 MHz, 9 KHz to 30 MHz, and 433-434 MHz in the license-exempt frequency ranges to support short range communications such as IoT and M2M communications.

– Including around 17 GHz of new spectrum to implement IMT/5G in radio spectrum below 1 GHz, between 1-6 GHz, and above 6 GHz.

MalaysiaFurther to the Regulatory Update issued of 18th October 2021 regarding 5G Technical Codes MCMC MTSFB TC T016:2021, the regulatory body, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has enforced the requirement for the certification of 5G user equipment from 21st December 2022.

 

Key notes are as follows:

•  Any 5G user equipment that supports Voice over New Radio (VoNR)/Voice over 5G (Vo5G) shall meet the requirements stated in test report standard 3GPP TS 34.229-5.

•  Applicants are required to submit the 3GPP TS 34.229-5 test report to be granted with full approval.

BelarusBelarus Suspension of Energy Efficiency Regulations.

 

The council of ministers of the Republic of Belarus released Resolution No.916.

 

As a result of this resolution, energy efficiency regulation No 849 from January 1, 2023 is suspended unless otherwise decided by the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus.

Therefore, from January 1, 2023, Belarus energy efficiency will be changed to voluntary certification rather than compulsory certification.

VietnamOn 30th November 2022, the Vietnamese Regulator – Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) promulgated the National Technical Regulation, Circular 24/2022/TT-BTTTT, on electrical safety requirements for telecommunication and information terminal equipment. This new Circular is expected to take effect from 1st January 2024.

This new Circular is to introduce new Electrical Safety standard QCVN 132:2022/BTTTT for ICT and ITE products including DECT phone, Desktop Computer, Laptop PC, Notebook, TV, Set-top-box. The QCVN 132:2022/BTTTT will replace the existing technical requirements specified at Clause 2.4 of QCVN 22:2010/BTTTT, which issued on 30th July 2010.

MIC provisionally accepts the test reports conform to IEC 62368-1:2018 issued by ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratories to conduct compliance assessment according to QCVN 132:2022/BTTT.

ArgentinaEnte Nacional de Comunicaciones (ENACOM) of Argentina has realeased Resolution 2385/2022 and 2386/2022 to allocate the frequency band between 3300 and 3600 MHz for the deployment of 5G systems in the country. Still on an early stage, as the approval department is still due to prepare/ update the corresponding regulation and testing standard to allow the approval of 5G devices.

 

As a summary, so far ENACOM has set up the following:

– They have instrumented a new Argentinean Service called “STeFI” (Reliable and Intelligent Telecommunications Service) to englobe 5G operations with some technical specifications:

i. A wireless service for fixed and mobile telecommunications, which through the use of digital access technologies with high spectral efficiency and flexible network architectures, supports enhanced mobile broadband applications, high-reliability and low-latency communications, and mass machine-type communications.

ii. TDD operation; 100MHz Bandwidth for less than 6GHz operation; 400MHz Bandwidth for over 6GHz operation; MIMO; Downlink 2Gbps; Uplink 150Mbps;

iii. Commercialization and usage terms for service providers

– They have allocated 3.300-3.600GHz band with primary basis to both Fixed and Mobile operation within the “Reliable and Intelligent Telecommunications Service (STeFI)” as TDD mode.

– In order to clear such spectrum, they have instructed to migrate any other fixed service working within 3.3-3.6GHz band providing an adoption timeframe of 2 (two) years

BrazilAgencia Nacional de Telecomunicacoes (ANATEL) in Brazil published the new Act No. 17087 to update the electrical safety standard for telecom devices and will replace Act 950 in 1 year (in force from Dec. 27th, 2023).
