Equipment bought abroad and/or on the Internet
Radio equipment that is placed on the EU market is presumed to meet the requirements. Market surveillance authorities such as BIPT ensure that only the radio equipment that is in conformity is placed on the market. However, the buyer must always be careful and check if the equipment he or she buys bears the CE marking and comes with the EU declaration of conformity of the manufacturer. If you buy equipment outside the European market, you may be considered as an importer. In that case, you must guarantee that the equipment is destined for the EU market and that it is in conformity with all the legal requirements.
In addition to those regarding radiocommunications, the use of drones is subject to other rules.
Duration of the contract
The telecom operator cannot offer you a subscription for more than 24 months. Is a 24-month subscription offered to you? Then you may ask the operator to limit the subscription to 12 months.
Fraudulent text messages & calls
The purpose of a fraudulent SMS or call is, via a vague message or a dropped call, to have you call a premium rate number in Belgium or abroad. If you do not know the number, check its structure before calling it back or do not call back. Be careful!
