NAME

       regulatory.bin - The Linux wireless regulatory database

Description

       regulatory.bin is the file used by the Linux wireless subsystem to keep
       its regulatory database information. It is read by crda upon the Linux
       kernel's request for regulatory information for a specific ISO / IEC
       3166 alpha2 country code. The regulatory database is kept in a small
       binary format for size and code efficiency. The regulatory.bin file can
       be parsed and read in human format by using the regdbdump command. The
       regulatory.bin file should be updated upon regulatory changes or
       corrections.

Upkeeping

       The regulatory database is maintained by the community as such you are
       encouraged to send any corrections or updates to the linux-wireless
       mailing list: linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org
