Description

You will be required to comply with this standard if you intend to manufacture, supply, sell or modify a cordless telephone that is capable of being operated in a cordless telephone frequency band.

The purpose of this standard is to ensure radiocommunications equipment achieves a satisfactory level of performance prior to use. The technical requirements of this standard are drawn from both:

  • AS/NZS 4295:2004 Analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment operating in land mobile and fixed services bands in the frequency range 29.7 MHz to 1 GHz; and
  • AS/NZS CISPR 22:2006 Information technology equipment - Radio disturbance characteristics - Limits and methods of measurement.

Please note that if you are importing a radiocommunication device for the sole purpose of use at a significant event it may be exempt from this standard.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
