On 31 May 2023, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) issued the “Interim Regulations on Radio Management of Wireless Charging (Power Transmission) Equipment” (无线充电(电力传输)设备无线电管理暂行规定, hereinafter the “Interim Regulations”).

According to the PRC Radio Regulation (无线电管理条例) issued by the Chinese government, non-radio equipment emitting radio waves shall comply with national standards and relevant provisions on national radio regulations.

Wireless charging (power transmission) equipment utilizes electromagnetic induction, electromagnetic resonance, and capacitive coupling to transmit electricity, which is non-radio equipment that radiates radio waves. However, until now there has been no clear management specification for wireless charging devices.

To address this issue, the MIIT has formulated the Interim Regulations to prevent such equipment from causing harmful interference with legitimate radio services.

The wireless charging devices covered by the Interim Regulations has two main categories: (i) mobile and portable wireless charging equipment, and (ii) wireless charging equipment for electric vehicles (including motorcycles).

Enterprises that produce or import wireless charging equipment for domestic sale and use do not need to require type approval. However, they must comply with the technical specifications, such as operating frequency and application scenarios stipulated by laws. Additionally, they shall also adhere to relevant laws and regulations and national standards concerning product quality, electromagnetic radiation, and electrical safety.
