Radio Spectrum Management has released a consultation document concerning increased use in portable electrical appliances and mobile devices. These devices have driven interest in wireless charging in what they do and how they work.
This technology has two components that require use of radio spectrum below the 30 MHz frequency range.
- Wireless power transfer system
- Inductive loop system
The consultation document identifies that these components fall within the definition of short range devices and are covered by the General User Radio Licence (GURL-SRD). It would mean that the existing technical conditions in the GURL SRD would need to be modified to explicitly allow the use of wireless power transmission and inductive loop systems.
Submissions are due by 5pm Friday 14 September 2018.
