Review of the Radiocommunications Act 1989

Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) in the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment is reviewing the Radiocommunications Act 1989.  We are seeking your views on how well the Act is working and what changes, if any, are required to the legislation.

The key areas of the radio spectrum management regime being considered as part of the review are:

  • interference management
  • competition regulation during spectrum allocations
  • technical definition of management rights and licences
  • regional division of management rights
  • regulation of new technologies such as cognitive radio and white space devices.

You are receiving this email because you have been identified as having an interest in radio spectrum regulation – as a management right owner, licence holder, or radio engineer, for example, or due to your involvement in an industry that uses radio spectrum.

To download the discussion document, or make a submission, please visit the consultation page on the RSM website. We are asking for feedback by Wednesday 1 October 2014.

Workshops on the review will be held in mid-September in Auckland and Wellington.  If there is sufficient demand, we will also hold a workshop in Christchurch.  To attend a workshop, please register your interest by Wednesday 10 September 2014

If you have any questions or queries, please contact radio.spectrum@mbie.govt.nz.

Yours sincerely

Len Starling
Manager, Radio Spectrum Management Policy and Planning
