The Department for Business innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Office of Communications (Ofcom) are aware of this long-standing area of concern. Ofcom is responsible for the UK management of the radio spectrum. Ofcom has commissioned an independent study into the likelihood and extent of radio frequency interference caused by Power Line Technology apparatus. This study is virtually complete and is expected to be published next month. BIS and Ofcom will then review any action that might be necessary based on this report.
