The telecommunications regulator, The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), is proposing to develop a new transmitter and receiver licence type, referred to as the area-wide apparatus licence type.

To establish the licence type, the ACMA says it is proposing regulatory changes to the apparatus licensing framework, including a new licence condition determination.

ACMA says the AWL type will authorise one or more radio communications devices in the geographic area and frequency or frequencies specified in the licence.

And, unlike existing apparatus licence types, the AWL will be capable of authorising a broad variety of services, uses, applications and technologies.

According to the ACMA, the aim of the new licence type is to benefit spectrum users by complementing existing licensing options and improving apparatus licensing flexibility.

“It should be noted that the AWL type was previously referred to as the ‘spectrum space’ apparatus licence in the draft five-year spectrum outlook 2019-23,” the ACMA said in a statement issued on Thursday.

Ahead of the introduction of the new licence type the ACMA has released a consultation paper calling for public comment about the proposal, to be submitted by close of business on 9 August.
