- 26,960 to 27,410 kHz

- 40.66 to 40.70 MHz

- 433.05 to 434.79 MHz

- 462,540 to 462,740 MHz

- 467,550 to 467,725 MHz

- or at frequencies 49,830, 49,845, 49,860, 49,875, and 49,890 MHz


2. Homologation requirements for wireless handsets are not necessary anymore 

3. The following operational frequency bands with corresponding EIRP characteristics for RFID were added:


- 915 - 928 MHz with EIRP 500 mW 

- 913 - 919 MHz with EIRP 1W 

- 925 - 928 MHz with EIRP 1W


4. Revised output power limit for WLAN frequency band 5150 – 5250 MHz from EIRP 200 mW is allowed up to EIRP 250mW

5. Information about Internet of Things (IoT) was added together with allowed operational bands and EIRP characteristics:


- 433.05 - 434.79 with EIRP up to 10 mW

- 868,175 - 868,375 with EIRP up to 25 mW 

- 915 - 928 with EIRP up to 500 mW

- 2,400 - 2,483.5 with EIRP up to 1 W 

- 5,250 - 5,350 with EIRP up to 1 W

- 5.470 - 5.725 with EIRP up to 1 W

- 5.725 - 5.850 with EIRP up to 1 W


6. Requirements to laboratories that carry out tests and prepare reports (test reports) were added. Now at least two international accreditations are necessary to ensure quality and objectivity of the measurements. The accreditation logo must be printed minimum on one page of every test report for getting approval in Chile.
