China: Implementation of New Regulations for Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Equipment

China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has recently issued revised regulations to enhance spectrum efficiency and maintain airwave order governing Ultra-Wideband (UWB) equipment.

These regulations, effective August 1, 2025, aim to promote the radio industry and ensure compatibility with other radio systems.  
UWB equipment, utilized for short-distance high-speed wireless communication and positioning within the 7163-8812MHz frequency range, must adhere to new technical requirements. Manufacturers and importers are required to obtain model approval from the national radio regulatory agency to ensure compliance with the regulations.

Key Regulation Takeaways

Specific technical standards must be met by UWB equipment, with SRRC approval mandated for compliance. Existing UWB equipment with type approval certificates can continue to be used until their end-of-life, providing a transition period until the regulations take full effect. 

The regulations will be updated in response to industrial developments and technological advancements. By August 1, 2025, only UWB equipment meeting the new technical criteria will be approved. These regulations replace the previous guidelines issued in 2008, reflecting China’s commitment to technological advancement and regulatory refinement in the radio industry.
