Regulations on Radio Control Issued

China is implementing a nationwide, cross-province, cross-autonomous-region, and cross-municipality control of radio transmissions.  

The State Council and the Central Military Commission jointly published the "Regulations for Radio Control," which will become effective on November 1, 2010.  

According to the regulations, which consist of 13 articles, during the period of radio control, organizations and individuals having, using, or managing radio stations, radio transmission equipment, and non-radio-equipment radiating radio waves must follow the orders and directives.  

The military electromagnetic frequency spectrum control authority is responsible for implementation of the regulations. Various government entities are required to assist with the implementation.  

Penalties for any violation of the regulations range from shutdown to revocation of license, forfeiture of equipment, and criminal penalties.
