EU revises spectrum harmonization provisions for short-range devices

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has updated its harmonization of the technical conditions for the use of the electromagnetic spectrum by a wide variety of short-range electrical and electronic devices, including alarms, local communications equipment, door openers and implantable medical devices. 

The changes are reflected in a Commission Decision issued in June 2010 and published in the Official Journal of the European Union.  The Decision includes a revised version of the technical Annex, originally published in 2006, which details power limitations and other operating conditions for various types of short-range devices, based on their operating frequencies.

The release of an updated Annex was prompted by a recommendation from the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) in November 2009 to revise a number of technical aspects to reflect technological advances in short-range devices.
