Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has published on its website a public consultation document related to the updated class license for Short Range Devices (SRDs). This aims at receiving views and comments of stakeholders and interested parties on the proposed updates.
The proposed updates to the class license are designed to keep pace with rapid technological advancements in radio-communications equipment and their applications. The updates are particularly related to “Annexure (2)”, where CRA proposes the addition of new applications and frequency bands for SRDs. In addition, the proposed updates include updates to the rules, international standards, and technical specifications for the SRDs intended to be imported to the State of Qatar, as well as the corresponding authorized maximum allowed output power.
The public consultation is regarded as a crucial part of this process because it allows CRA to understand and take into consideration the needs of all stakeholders and interested parties in an organized and transparent manner.
Stakeholders and interested parties can email their views and comments about the class license to firstname.lastname@example.org until deadline; namely Thursday, 11 March 2021.
