The Issue
Consultation Period: 
May 18, 2017 09:00 AEST to July 28, 2017 17:00 AEST

The Australian Government has released a consultation package on proposed reforms to modernise and simplify Australia’s spectrum management framework. We extended the timeframe for submissions to the first stage of consultation until Friday 28 July 2017, 5:00pm.

We are seeking feedback on the draft proposals set out in the spectrum pricing and Commonwealth held spectrum consultation papers. Feedback will assist the Government in its consideration of an appropriate spectrum pricing framework under the new legislative framework and the efficient management of Commonwealth held spectrum.

Please note this is your final opportunity to comment on the spectrum pricing and Commonwealth held spectrum reviews. No further consultation on the spectrum pricing or Commonwealth held spectrum reviews is expected.

The government is also consulting on a proposed new spectrum legislative framework and the approaches to broadcasting and transitional arrangements.; It is important to consider these reviews in the context of the proposed new legislative framework when providing your feedback.

Submissions now public

The submissions can now be found on the Consultation on new Spectrum legislation page.

These submissions have been created by third parties and may not be accessible. For an accessible copy, please email spectrumreform [at] communications.gov.au.
