8. Main Content
8. The Ordinance of the Swiss Federal Office of Communications on telecommunications installations (OOIT) specifies the basic technical requirements with regard to telecommunications installations set out by the Swiss Federal Council. It regulates the use of radio interfaces in Switzerland.
For legal reasons, the version of each RIR was increased by 1. Nothing has changed in content except for the following RIRs:
A new RIR (RIR0501-32) for Railway Mobile Radio (RMR) in the frequency range 1900 - 1910 MHz will be created.
The RIR (RIR0601-05, RIR0808-15) in the frequency ranges 1626.5 - 1646.5 MHz and 14.00 - 14.25 GHz will be deleted since Inmarsat-B and Euteltracs are no longer in service.
In the domain of GSM-R in the frequency range 873 - 925 MHz the RIR (RIR0501-16, RIR0501-17, RIR0501-18) will be amended due to the replacement of the ECC/DEC/(02)05 by the ECC/DEC(20)02.
The following modifications concern the domain of FSS (Fixed-Satellite Service) earth stations:
The RIR (RIR0806-06, RIR0806-10, RIR0806-11, RIR0806-16) will be deleted. All applications will remain included in the RIR (RIR0806-17, RIR0806-05, RIR0806-17, RIR0806-18) in the same order.
The standard EN 303 981 will be added to the RIR (RIR0806-22, RIR0806-24) and adjustments due to the unification of the 'Authorisation regime' will be made.
The RIR (RIR0806-01, RIR0806-15, RIR0806-23) will be adjusted due to the unification of the 'Authorisation regime' text.
The RIR (RIR0806-20, RIR0806-21) will be adjusted due to the changes of the ECC/DEC/(13)01 and ECC/DEC/(15)04 and due to the unification of the 'Authorisation regime' text.
The RIR RIR0806-05 will be modified in order to cover also SUT (Satellite User Terminals) applications. Further adaptations will be made due to the changes of ECC/DEC(05)01 and the unification of the 'Authorisation regime' text.
The RIR RIR0806-18 will be modified in order to cover VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminals) and HEST (High e.i.r.p. Satellite Terminals) applications. Further adaptations will be made due to the changes of ECC/DEC(06)03 and the unification of the 'Authorisation regime' text.
The RIR (RIR0806-17) will be adjusted due to the changes of the ECC/DEC/(06)03 and due to the unification of the 'Authorisation regime' text.
Modifications to VFAV annex 4:
Several modifications will be made regarding the provisions of the type approval procedure which apply to mobile jammers, fixed jammers, and other special electronics intended to be operated by authorities to safeguard public security (VFAV Annex 4, lit. 1.1, 1.2, 1.4).
Modifications to VFAV annex 5:
The technical and administrative regulations (TAV 5.2, TAV 5.3, TAV 5.4) which apply to mobile jammers, fixed jammers, and other special electronics intended to be operated by authorities to safeguard public security will be adapted. For electrical safety and health reasons, the obligation to prove compliance with the essential requirements by means of test reports will be lifted. A written confirmation that the requirements have been met will be sufficient. Concerning the choice of the test laboratory that carries out the approval measurements for mobile jammers, fixed jammers, and other special electronics intended to be operated by authorities to safeguard public security, the requirement will be adjusted from "accredited" to "recognized", which gives more options in the choice of the test laboratory.


9. Brief Statement of Grounds
The OOIT has to be updated to follow the latest frequency management in Europe and to amend some rules applicable to radio communication’s equipment intended to be used exclusively for state security.
