Australian Regulator Proposes New Radio License Type
Friday, July 05, 2019 | Comments

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) proposed a new transmitter and receiver license type, referred to as the area-wide apparatus license (AWL) type. This new license is intended to complement existing licensing options and improve apparatus licensing flexibility, particularly by providing a scalable licensing option to support area-wide multidevice deployments. 


The AWL type is intended to authorize the operation of one or more radio communications devices within a defined geographic area at a frequency or frequencies specified on the license, subject to the conditions included on the issued license. 

The license type will be scalable, enabling its use for different-sized geographic areas and bandwidths. Unlike existing apparatus license types, which typically align with specific uses and purposes, the AWL type will be capable of authorizing a variety of fixed and mobile services, uses, applications and technologies. 

ACMA is proposing regulatory changes to elements of the apparatus licensing framework and the development of a new license condition determination for the AWL type. The ACMA welcomes comment from interested stakeholders on the issues raised in a consultation paper or any other issues relevant to the proposed AWL type.

Comments are due 9 August. The draft documents are here.
