Principles as made
Section 69 of the Radiocommunications Act (the Act) requires registration with the ACMA of transmitters deployed under spectrum licences. Registering these devices on the ACMA’s public register records the fact that the devices are operating within their licence conditions, allows spectrum licensees to coordinate their devices and it enables speedy interference investigation and resolution by the ACMA if subsequent interference complaints are made. Accredited Persons (APs) play an important role in spectrum management, including device registration.
