Notice No. SMEP-001-94
This notice is given further to the Discussion paper released in April 1993 (Notice No. SMEP-005-93) for public comment entitled Need for Mandatory Radio Receiver Standards in the Mobile
As a result of the comments received on this subject and taking into consideration requirements from a spectrum management viewpoint, the Department will proceed to make the following changes for the use of receiver standards in the spectrum management process.
- For equipment certification purposes, receiver standards given in current RSS's except receiver spurious emission standards, will be treated as non-mandatory, recommended standards. These recommended receiver standards will be published in an Annex to the RSS's.
- If an applicant for equipment certification claims in the test report that the equipment meets the recommended receiver standards, the Department will record this information in the Radio Equipment List (REL).
- These recommended standards will be assumed in any compatibility analysis and other technical studies carried out by the Department for frequency selection and spectrum sharing purposes.
- Any interference complaints which the district office of the Department may determine are due to receiver parameters will be referred to the equipment suppliers and/or the service providers as appropriate.
