Ofcom has today published a statement setting out its decision for new wireless telegraphy legislation, intended to tackle undue interference from electrical and electronic apparatus.
Electrical and electronic apparatus are capable of emitting electromagnetic energy. In most cases, this is minimal and has no noticeable negative effects. However, in some cases the level of energy emitted from apparatus can cause undue interference to wireless communications (i.e. wireless telegraphy).
Ofcom has powers to take enforcement action in instances where some types of electrical or electronic apparatus causes undue interference to wireless communications (i.e. wireless telegraphy).
The regulations are intended to keep pace with technical developments.
The regulations are expected to come into force on 18th April 2016.
