1 Scope

The present document applies to user equipment, repeaters and base stations for IMT, falling within the scope of one of

the other parts of ETSI EN 301 908 [i.8], except for IMT-2000 FDMA/TDMA (DECT). The present document also

covers the corresponding ancillary equipment.

NOTE 1: ETSI EN 301 908-10 [i.7] contains in particular requirements for radiated spurious emissions and control

and monitoring functions applicable to IMT-2000 FDMA/TDMA (DECT) equipment.

The present document includes technical requirements which are common to equipment falling within the scope of

several of the other parts. It should be used in conjunction with at least another part of ETSI EN 301 908 [i.8].

NOTE 2: The other parts of ETSI EN 301 908 [i.8], which are listed in the foreword of the present document,

specify technical requirements in respect of a particular type of IMT equipment.

NOTE 3: Recommendations ITU-R M.1457-15 [i.4], M.2012-4 [i.5] and M.2150.0 [i.10] define the characteristics

of the members of the IMT-2000 family and IMT-Advanced respectively by means of references to

technical specifications developed by Standards Development organizations. The present document

applies to equipment designed to meet any version of the terrestrial specifications referenced in

Recommendations ITU-R M.1457-15 [i.4] and M.2012-4 [i.5].

The present document contains requirements to demonstrate that radio equipment both effectively uses and supports the

efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference.
