EUEU publishes amendment to delegated regulation of (EU) 2022/30.

Essential requirement of Cybersecurity that setout in RED 2014/53/EU article 3.3 (d), (e), (f) is postpone to be applied 1 August 2025. This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

BrazilThe Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações (ANATEL) has released Act No. 7971 in July for technical requirements of IPv6 protocol in telecommunication equipment.

This Act enters into force on the date of its publication (July 6th 2023) in ANATEL’s Electronic Services Bulletin, with the application of its annex being mandatory from January 8, 2024.

 

Updated the requirements for IPv6 for products with WWAN, xPON, xDSL, and DOCSIS. Additionally, this standard has the following main changes:

1)     Changed the IPv6 standard RFC 2460 to the new RFC 8200 for the Mobile Service (WWAN).

2)     Formalize that for products using WWAN modules already approved by ANATEL where the entire IPv6 protocol is implement in the WWAN module (not by the host), it is possible to carry out only the IPv6 protocol verification or testing only RFC 8200 would be enough to demonstrate the host meets ANATEL IPv6 requirements. Moreover, manufacturer will need to sign a declaration informing that the IPv6 protocol is fully integrated in the module.

However, for products that the IPv6 protocol is fully or partially implemented in the host’s software/firmware (E.g., implemented in Operational System), it is required to perform all the IPv6 tests again.

On July 13th, ANATEL has released Act No. 9281 of July 5, 2023, the new technical requirements for assessing the compliance of Smart TV Box. This Act enters into force on the date of published, and will be mandatory from Sep. 11th, 2023.

 

The aim is to contain the spread of equipment aimed at piracy of audio-visual works and which put the security of users and telecommunications networks at risk.

The new assessment methodology that includes the following checks:

1)         Existence of any software or application installed by default on the product that is on the list of irregular equipment or software published or endorsed by ANATEL.

2)         Existence in the product of any software, application, functionality or instructions that indicate copyright infringement of audio-visual content.

3)         If the equipment is supplied with facilities for changing the characteristics of its operating system (root mode) or if it allows the installation of unverified third-party applications in an official store, which facilitates the installation of pirated applications by the common user.

Whether information or instructions on the use, updating or installation of software or applications for illicit access to audio-visual content appear in the product manual or any other documentation relating to the equipment on the manufacturer’s or its national representative’s website.

PeruThe Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) has released Resolución Ministerial N.° 0597-2023-MTC/01.03 for the new National Frequency Allocation Plan of 2023. This new resolution has revoked Resolución Ministerial N.°187-2005-MTC/03, which approves the previous PNAF and its amendments, but retain the validity of some existing provisions.
El SalvadorThe General Superintendence of Electricity and Telecommunications (Siget) has updated National Frequency Allocation to allow Wi-Fi 6E networks (5.925 to 7.125 MHz) as “Unlicensed”.

The resolution restricts its use to indoor environments, it ensures efficient and secure use of the frequency spectrum. Same with FCC regulation, brief as below:

AP: EIRP:30 dBm, EIRP PSD: 5 dBm/MHz

Client: EIRP:24 dBm, EIRP PSD: -1 dBm/MHz

AustraliaThe Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) held a public consultation in October 2022 on new arrangements for low interference potential devices (LIPD). On May 23, 2023, ACMA published the outcomes for this consultation and will implement the following to the LIPD Class License:

1)         Increasing the existing power limit and allowing outdoor operation of devices operating in the 5150-5250 MHz frequency band;

2)         Defining “indoors”;

3)         Implementing out-of-band emission limits for Radio Local Access Network (RLAN) devices that operate in the lower 6 GHz frequency band.

New ZealandRSM has released the Radiocommunications Regulations (Radio Standards) Notice 2023, which came in to force as of 1st July 2023.
South KoreaOn July 11, 2023, the National Radio Research Agency (RRA) of Korea initiated open consultations concerning a draft revision of certain EMC test methods. Interested parties are welcome to submit their comments through the Korea RRA contact, and the comment period will remain open until July 31, 2023. The proposed revision aims to incorporate changes in the electromagnetic compatibility test method to align with the updated national standard (KS).
On July 19, 2023, the Korean National Radio Research Agency (RRA) issued a formal re-announcement of an open opinion collection notice regarding the proposed revision of certain aspects of the ‘Announcement on the Designation and Management of Testing Institutions for Broadcasting and Communication Equipment, etc.’ The primary objective of this revision is to enhance regulations and improve the efficiency of designating and managing conformity assessment testing laboratories.

 

The proposed changes aim to provide clarity regarding the qualification requirements for testing personnel, expand exemptions from on-site inspections during designation changes, and establish a foundation for implementing security measures to prevent forgery and falsification of test reports.

 

The reason for the re-administration of the notice is to modify the original requirement from ‘Hologram and Security Measures’ to ‘Hologram or Electronic Security Measures’. Interested parties who wish to share their comments or feedback on the proposed revision can reach out to the Korean RRA before the deadline on August 7th, 2023.

SerbiaSerbia’s new Radio Frequency Band Allocation Plan has been released by RATEL. The plan provides a comprehensive framework for the allocation of radio frequency bands to specific radio communication services and activities, adhering to relevant international agreements and recommendations, with a focus on promoting the interests of citizens, the economy, national security, and defense.

 

The Radio Frequency Band Allocation Plan was officially published in the “Official Gazette of RS“, No. 89/20 on June 25, 2020, and it took effect on July 3, 2020. This adoption of the new plan creates the necessary legal basis to facilitate changes and amendments to current regulations in the domain of radio communications.
