The Telecommunications, Radiocommunications and Broadcasting Regulator (TRBR) hereby announces the introduction of the General User Radio Licence (GURL) Guideline for National Type Approval Framework and Short - range Radiocommunications Devices (SRDs) for the Republic of Vanuatu. The TRBR welcomes and invites comments and feedback to this consultation document from all interested parties.

The successful introduction of this proposed new guideline for telecommunications, radiocommunications and broadcasting technical conditions and radiation limits for SRDs and unlicensed equipment will involve many stakeholders, including some that are not participants in the telecommunications and broadcasting sector. TRBR is consulting directly with many stakeholders to ensure they are made aware and understand the interference issues that can be generated by this type of devices/equipment if they are not operating within the specifications specified in this Guideline. TRBR is proposing this guideline to guide SRD users in Vanuatu to overcome any present or potential interference issues on licenced frequency bands. TRBR proposes that all SRDs and like equipment that is intended to be imported into, or to be manufactured and to be used in Vanuatu, must be in compliance with this Guideline.

The dateline for public comments is 4:30pm 1st of December 2019 .

The consultation is closed, the final document can be accessed in Guidelines.
