AS/NZS 4295:2015

AS/NZS 4295:2015 is the current standard, published on 14/05/2015, and it outlines the requirements for analog speech (angle modulated) equipment operating in the land mobile and fixed services bands within the frequency range of 29.7 MHz to 1 GHz. This standard is specifically applicable to VHF and UHF land mobile and fixed service radiofrequency bands that are not covered by spectrum licensing arrangements.

The significance of this standard lies in ensuring that radio equipment used for communication in these bands meets specific safety, performance, and interoperability criteria. By adhering to these requirements, the equipment is expected to function effectively without causing or suffering from unacceptable levels of interference.

AS/NZS 4295:2015 leverages test methods specified by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) standard EN 300 086-1. This approach ensures that the equipment tested according to this standard will be consistent with international testing methodologies and criteria, promoting harmonization in equipment performance and aiding in the reduction of cross-border radio frequency interference.

This standard is crucial for manufacturers, suppliers, and users of VHF and UHF radio equipment in Australia and New Zealand, ensuring that the equipment provides reliable communication for land mobile and fixed services while adhering to established radiofrequency regulations and standards. Compliance with AS/NZS 4295:2015 is vital for the legal marketing and usage of these radio communication devices within the specified regions.
