NOTIFICATION OF THE DRAFT RADIOCOMMUNICATIONS (LOW INTERFERENCE POTENTIAL DEVICES) CLASS LICENCE VARIATION 2021 (NO.2)

 

Notice is given under section 136 of the Radiocommunications Act 1992 (the Act) of the draft Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence Variation 2021 (No.2) (the draft Variation) proposed to be made by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) under section 132 of the Act. The draft Variation proposes to add new arrangements for radio Local Area Network transmitters in the 5925–6425 MHz frequency band by varying the Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence 2015 (the LIPD Class Licence).

 

Proposed changes 

The LIPD Class Licence contains the licence conditions, operational requirements and technical parameters associated with a wide range of low power radiocommunications devices operating in various segments of the radiofrequency spectrum.

 

The draft Variation proposes to amend the LIPD Class Licence by: 

·         Inserting new frequency bands for radio Local Area Network transmitters

·         Correcting an error regarding carrier frequencies in item 25, and a spelling error in item 39C, of the table in Schedule 1.

 

Copies of the LIPD Class Licence, the draft Variation, and the consultation paper explaining the above amendments in more detail are available on the ACMA’s website (www.acma.gov.au) and hard copies may be obtained from the ACMA by contacting:
