Radio Spectrum Five Year Outlook released

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has today released its proposed five-year work programme for radio spectrum management, for comment.

“The radio spectrum is a key enabler for access to the digital world and the latest communications technologies,” Radio Spectrum Policy and Planning Manager Len Starling said, “so it’s an important part of the economy.”

“We’re publishing the Radio Spectrum Five Year Outlook to get the views of industry experts and commentators on likely future trends in the sector and on the Ministry’s proposed work programme,” he said.

The Radio Spectrum Five Year Outlook includes a proposal to review the Radiocommunications Act 1989, which last had a major review around 15 years ago.

The intention is that the final document will represent a shared understanding of the Ministry’s priorities and work programme. Interested stakeholders will have six weeks, until 20 September 2012, to submit their feedback to: radiospectrum@med.govt.nz.

The Radio Spectrum Five Year Outlook 2012-2016 has been published on our Radio Spectrum website.
