Australia – Variations to the LIPD Class License

ACMA have announced a consultation of proposed changes to the LIPD Class License.

Of most interest to WLAN devices is a proposal to further consider aligning technical restrictions for devices operating in the 57-66 GHz band with changes made by the FCC, which would include an expansion of the frequency range to 57-71 GHz.

The ACMA is seeking comments from interested parties on a proposed variation that makes changes to the Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence 2015 (LIPD Class Licence).

The proposed variation adds arrangements for medical endoscopy capsules (430−440 MHz), wireless medical telemetry devices (2483.5–2500 MHz), all transmitters (122−122.25 GHz) and revises technical restrictions on data communications transmitters (57−66 GHz) to align with changes by the United States Federal Communications Commission.

Full details can be found here. Submissions can be made by January 19, 2018.
