NEW ZEALAND UPDATED REGULATIONS FOR SHORT RANGE DEVICES (SRDs)

Effective April 8, 2019

A new edition of the General User Radio Licence for Short Range Devices (GURL-SRDs) came into effect April 8, 2019. Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) can use 9-205 kHz and 315-430 kHz.

Amendments to New Zealand’s GURL-SRD include:

  • a new provision to clarify the use of the frequency range 5725 – 5850 MHz for customer premise equipment with higher antenna gain operating in conjunction with an associated fixed radio link device acting as a central access point, as permitted in the Radio communications Regulations (General User Radio Licence for Fixed Radio Link Devices) Notice 2015
  • an increase in maximum transmission power (e.i.r.p.) in the frequency range 502 – 510 MHz from −10 dBW to −3 dBW in order to align with the same power as permitted in General User Spectrum Licence for UHF Radio Microphone (Licence number 222922)
  • a new special condition 29 was added to clarify that the frequency ranges 0.009 – 0.205 MHz and 0.315 – 0.430 MHz could also be used for applications such as wireless power transfer systems
  • an amendment to the provision in the frequency range 184 – 230 MHz to reflect the updated lower frequency boundary due to the reallocation of the frequency range 174 – 184 MHz for land mobile use
  • an amendment to Special Condition 14 by applying the duty cycle requirement only for the portion in 405 – 406 MHz, instead of the frequency range 402 – 406 MHz
  • an amalgamation of two previous provisions in 76 – 77 GHz and 77 – 81 GHz into a single contiguous provision 76 – 81 GHz with the maximum transmission power (e.i.r.p.) at 25 dBW
