New Zealand prohibits unrestricted Baofeng , Pofung and Wouxun

Baofeng prohibits unrestricted

New Zealand’s regulator RSM reports:
In August, we mentioned creating a prohibition notice for unrestricted two-way radios. This was to limit the availability to the general public for radios that don’t meet the Radio Standards. 

The prohibition notice is ready to gazette and will come into effect on 18 October 2018. 

The notice will affect the supply of two-way radios like Baofeng, Pofungand Wouxun to the amateur market, but not equipment factory locked to the Amateur bands.

Amateur radio operators or suppliers need to hold a ‘Licence to supply radio transmitters’ to import and supply this equipment.  
When you’ve received your Licence to supply number, email us atsupply@rsm.govt.nz. We’ll add special conditions to your licence to allow the import and supply of this equipment.  You’ll need to supply us monthly returns of your imports and sales, including nil returns.
