In the UK, Ofcom has decided to issue new regulations for wireless telegraphy.
Wireless Telegraphy (Control of Interference from Apparatus) Regulations 2016 is intended to tackle undue interference from electrical and electronic apparatus.
In most cases, electrical and electronic apparatus are capable of emitting electromagnetic energy, but is minimal. However, in some cases the level of energy emitted from apparatus can cause undue interference to wireless communications.
“Ofcom has powers to take enforcement action in instances where some types of electrical or electronic apparatus causes undue interference to wireless communications (i.e. wireless telegraphy).” The regulations are intended to keep pace with technical developments and are expected to come into force on 18th April 2016.
