Radiocommunications Act 1992 (Cth) - Level 4

View Legislation

The Radio Communications Act is concerned with the regulating the use of the radio frequency spectrum within Australia.
A fundamental principal of the Act is that the operation of all radio transmitters (<470 Terahertz, just under infra red) must be authorised by a telecommunications licence. This is independent of the Telecommunications Act 1997, where a carrier licence or nominated carrier licence is required. This Act has relevance for the University as the operator of a Radio Station.
