Taiwan update February 2018:

On January 10, 2018, Taiwanese Regulator National Communications Commission (NCC) published the definitive version of Technical Regulation LP0002 for Low-power Radio-frequency, effective immediately upon publication. The main changes are as follows:

Additional frequency bands available for RFID devices from 922-928 MHz to 920-928 MHz.
Addition of newly announced frequency bands for mobile broadband business to the Frequency Allocation Table.
Allocation of 920-925 MHz for ‘other IoT devices’.

For any devices currently approved with UHF RFID technology, such devices may only operate on the previously permitted band 922-928 MHz. If manufacturers would like any currently approved devices to use the extended range of 920-928 MHz, then a new approval will be required.

As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contact CSIA for up to date information.
