Regulatory Updates for Thailand
NBTC issue final decision regarding use of partial LTE/5G NR bands
Thai Regulator National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has recently issued a final decision regarding the suspension of Type Approval applications for products supporting partial bands of LTE/5G NR Band 28 and 41.

By way of reminder, NBTC announced earlier in the year that they had received feedback advising that some WWAN user equipment supporting partial bands of LTE/5G NR band 28 and 41 had been causing inefficiency in Thai networks. NBTC consequently announced that they would be making an official decision regarding the future approval of equipment supporting partial bands of LTE/5G NR band 28 and 41.

The main frequencies impacted by the new regulation are LTE/5G NR band 28 with partial frequencies such as 718-748MHz and 773-803MHz, and LTE/5G NR band 41 with partial frequencies such as 2535-2655MHz. NBTC will no longer issue type approval for equipment operating on these bands and will only issue approvals for equipment using the full band as per NBTC Notification regarding IMT frequency plan and as per 3GPP standards. 

NBTC have not formally announced their grandfathering policy, though have verbally confirmed that previously approved product certificates with equipment using LTE/5G NR band 28 and 41 partial bands will remain valid. NBTC will not withdraw existing approval certificates for equipment using partial bands. 

NBTC have advised however that they may request that certificate holders of equipment using partial bands ensure that the equipment displays information making the user of the equipment aware that partial bands only are supported. 

No formal announcement has been released here and we will continue to monitor this to see if changes are brought into effect.

NBTC have issued new standards NBTC TS 1036-2563 and NBTC TS 1037-2563 defining the technical standards and minimum technical characteristics of telecommunications equipment using 5G technology. The standards are as follows:

NBTC TS 1036-2563: Technical Standards of Telecommunication Equipment of User Equipment in International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) Services using IMT 2020 Technology

NBTC issue new technical standard NBTC TS 1035-2562
The Office of The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) of Thailand issued TS 1035-2562 for wireless equipment in the 2.4 / 5 GHz band, replacing NTC TS 1012-2551. 

A summary of changes can be seen below:

  • NBTC TS 1035-2562 specifies the revisions of EN test standards (e.g. EN300 328 V2.1.1, EN301 893 V2.1.1., EN302 502 V2.1.1, ETSI TS 136104/ETSI TS 136101 v13.2.0) required to support type approval applications.
  • For radio equipment supporting 5.725-5.850GHz, test reports to EN 300 440 will no longer be accepted. Test reports submitted to support a type approval application must be to standards EN302 502, FCC 15.247 or FCC 15.407.
  • Electrical safety standard IEC 62368-1 is now accepted by NBTC, along with TIS1561-2556.

The updates contained in TS 1035-2562 do not effect products previously type approved in Thailand.
