Notice is hereby given that Industry Canada is releasing the following document for public comment:

ICES-005 Interference-Causing Equipment Standard for Radio Frequency Lighting Devices (RFLD) ICES-005, Issue 1 — Draft.

This draft standard is a new initiative by Industry Canada. The purpose of ICES-005 is to impose limits on radio noise emissions from radio frequency lighting devices, or RFLD.

As an Interference-Causing Equipment Standard, ICES-005 will be given effect by the Radiocommunication Regulations, under which it is to be designated as a Category II Equipment Standard.

In accordance with Section 20 of the Radiocommunication Regulations, the Category II Equipment Standards List is published in the Canada Gazette Part  I and provides a list of all technical standards applicable to interference-causing equipment. The effective date of the above standard will be the publication date of the amended list which will include this standard. Compliance with a listed standard is required in accordance with the Radiocommunication Regulations.

The ICES-005, Issue 1 —  Draft document is available at the following Internet WWW addresses: http://www.ic.gc.ca/spectrum for the English version and http://www.ic.gc.ca/spectre for the French version.
