News for New Zealand

  • Public Consultation on Draft Five Year Spectrum Outlook

    In December 2021, the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) opened the public consultation on the radio frequency spectrum outlook 2022 to 2026.

    Interested stakeholders are invited to submit their feedback by 5 PM on February, 28, 2022, preferably by e-mail to

  • Open consultation for 6 GHz devices

    Due to the  increased use of WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) in New Zealand, Radio Spectrum Management (RMS) has opened a public consultation seeking feedback on their preliminary views and proposals for the 5925 MHz - 7125 MHz frequency range.

    RSM proposes to authorise the General User Radio Licence (GURL) for Short Range Devices (SRD) to cover low power and very lower power WLAN devices in the range 5925 - 6425 MHz:

    • Low Power devices operating at 24 dBm for indoor use only
    • Very Low Power devices operating at 14 dBm for all locations

    Comments shall be submitted no later than 5pm on 30th of June 2021 per email to:  with subject line: “Consultation Submission - WLAN use in the 6 GHz band”

  • New General User Radio License for Short Range Devices

    On 6 November 2020, a new General User Radio License for Short Range Devices (GURL for Short Range devices) came into force by being published in the official Gazette of New Zealand.

    In comparison to the 2019 version, the following amendments were made:
    - the use of the frequencies 0.1485 – 30 MHz for wireless power transfer systems and induction loop systems for the detection of foreign objections has been regulated
    - a new provision for the use of the frequency range 1785 – 1805 MHz for wireless microphone, in-ear monitor, or wireless audio transmitter devices 
    - in order to implement WRC-19 Resolution 229: amendments to regulation of wireless LAN outdoor use of 5150 – 5350 MHz devices with a power level up to 0 dBW were made

    - the use of 13.553 – 13.567 MHz RFID transmitters has been regulated

  • New frequencies allowed

    The New Zealend’s Autority RMS Radio Spectrum Management has published on 3rd of December, that the Minister has dicided to open some frequency bands for new technologies

    The frequencies are as follow:

    • 184   MHz – 230   MHz
    • 2370 MHz – 2395 MHz
    • 5875 MHz – 5925 MHz

    For more details please see the attached document


  • Public Consultation On Wireless Charging

    The Radio Spectrum Management of the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has emitted a discussion paper entitled "Adding new usages to General User Radio Licence for Short Range Devices below 30 MHz".

    This technical consultation aims at clarifying the existing technical conditions in the general user radio licence (GURL SRD) for a specific field, wireless charging. This technology includes wireless power transfer (WPT) system and inductive loop system, operating in sub 30 MHz frequency range.

    The different frequency ranges of WPT already fall implicitly within the current provisions of the GURL SRD. But the inductive loop systems operate within a wide range (0.1485-30 MHz) across many provisions within the GURL SRD.

    To clarify the proper use of radio spectrum wireless charging, there is a need to add a new provision to the GURL SRD explicitly covering both entire frequency ranges.

    Comments are expected until 2018-09-14 at 5pm (local time),

Safety Information for New Zealand

Type I Plug
Type I Sock Type I Plug Type I Sock

The Type I plug has two flat pins in a V-shape as well as a grounding pin. A version of the plug, which only has the two flat pins, exists as well. The Australian plug also works with sockets in China. Australia’s standard plug/socket system is rated 10 amps but a plug/socket configuration rated 15 amps also exists, although the ground pin is wider. A standard 10 amp plug will fit into a 15 amp socket but not the other way around.
