United Kingdom
1. september 2009
Yes Implemented mainly by administrative means. The circulation of most kinds of radio equipment is permitted in the UK whether or not it may be legally used. There are some exceptions to this: CB equipment: There is free movement (into the UK) and use (under licence) of MPT type approved UK CB apparatus. There is similarly free movement and use (under individual licence) within CEPT of PR-27 equipment that is properly marked and type approved. Nevertheless, there are restrictions on all other kinds of CB apparatus that cannot be legally used in the UK. To comply with EU single market requirements, the UK does allow imports of such equipment from the EU. However its possession, advertisement, sale and manufacture is prohibited. Furthermore imports of such equipment are prohibited from countries outside the EU (including, because they are not EU members, some CEPT countries). Cordless telephones: Those cordless telephones that do not meet MPTs 1322, 1334 or 1371 - and thus may not be used in the UK - are restricted as to importation from all countries, manufacture, advertisement, sale or possession. The UK does, however, allow imports for re-export and for sale to overseas visitors by special authority. Videosenders: The UK is making an Order prohibiting imports from any country, manufacture, advertisement, sale or possession of videosenders. Clearance has been obtained from the European Commission and from GATT/WTO
