Australia – Proposed Update to Australian Radiofrequency Spectrum Plan

australiaThe ACMA has proposed updating its Radiofrequency Spectrum Plan based upon changes agreed at WRC-15.

In addition to reflecting updated international arrangements, changes proposed to the Spectrum Plan include:

  • updates reflecting domestic changes that have occurred over the past four years
  • correction of a small number of minor typographical errors
  • adding two new Australian footnotes to explicitly support the space vehicle tracking treaty between the Australian and United States governments
  • the insertion of a provision to provide increased flexibility to allow the operation of services not specified in the plan in certain circumstances.

Full details of the proposal can be found at: and the consultation period is open until 24 October 2016.
