Ofcom Amends Regulations For Short Range Radar Equipment
By Emmanuel Oluebube, Correspondent UK
Ofcom has confirmed its decision to amend regulations regarding the use of short range radar (SRR) equipment in vehicles.
Short range radar equipment includes blind spot and collision radars and other driving assistance technology, some of which relies on spectrum.
The Wireless Telegraphy (Automotive Short Range Radar) (Exemption) Regulations 2013 allow certain SRRs in cars to be used in the 24 GHz band without the need for a spectrum licence. We have amended the regulations, so that these licence exemptions continue to apply in the UK after the end of the transition period in the Withdrawal Agreement between the UK and the European Union at 11pm on December 31, 2020.
