ACMA’s Low Interference Potential Devices consultation

Changes have been proposed for the LIPD Class License: 2015 to:

  • support new technology applications
  • bring Australia into line with international arrangements.


The updates cover new arrangements for:

  • radiocommunications receivers communicating with satellites in the 915–928 MHz and 2400–2483.5 MHz bands
  • frequency-hopping radiocommunications transmitters in the 5925–6425 MHz band
  • radio local area network (RLAN) radiocommunications transmitters in the 5150–5250 MHz band.



  • introduce a definition of ‘indoor’
  • include additional technical limitations on the use of RLAN devices in the 5925–6425 MHz band.


The consultation paper is now closed for comments.
