Regulatory Working Group

Mission of the WG

To address all regulatory issues pertaining to the use and protection of DECT Spectrum worldwide. This includes adjacent and co-channel interference issues, as well as the communication and interpretation of new regulatory law from any affected DECT regional usage, and formation of strategic proposals on behalf of DECT Forum as to spectrum usage. This involves regular liaisons and contributions to regulatory studies and policy documents in CEPT, ETSI, ITU-R and MIC. The Regulatory Working Group also addresses the creation of industry relevant information on the technology and how it is applied, working closely with ETSI TC DECT to align on regulatory relevant activities for DECT-5G and DECT worldwide.
