ACMA Update Amendment to EME instruments
On 15 November 2019, the ACMA made the Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic Radiation – Human Exposure) Amendment Standard 2019 (No. 1) (Exposure Standard Amendment) and the Radiocommunications Licence Conditions (Apparatus Licence) Amendment Determination 2019 (No. 1) (LCD Amendment) under the Radiocommunications Act 1992.
The Exposure Standard Amendment updates the Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic Radiation – Human Exposure) Standard 2014 to ensure equipment that will be operating on frequencies up to 6 GHz is tested in accordance with the latest international measurement standards and is compliant with labelling requirements for Australia’s electromagnetic energy standards.
The LCD Amendment updates the Radiocommunications Licence Conditions (Apparatus Licence) Determination 2015 to ensure the EME arrangements for equipment and the EME licence conditions on transmitters operate as intended.
The compilations of these instruments will be available on the Federal Registration of Legislation shortly.
