Draft revision to RALI FX21

IFC 7/2014 - 24 February 2014

Outcome

The consultation period has now closed and after considering comments received, RALI FX21 has been revised and is available here.

Background

The ACMA is seeking comment on a revision to the existing Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instruction (RALI)  FX21 “Television outsides broadcast services in the frequency bands 1980-2110 MHz and 2170-2300 MHz”.

The RALI was previously revised in September 2013 to include channel arrangements for television outsides broadcast (TOB) services in the frequency bands 2010-2110 MHz and 2200-2300 MHz. Following ongoing discussions with stakeholders the RALI is now being revised to include supporting coordination arrangements. Before finalising the revision the ACMA is seeking comment from other interested parties. The draft revised RALI is available for download in PDF (1.4 MB) or Word (1.3 MB).

Submissions

Submissions regarding the revisions to RALI FX21 should be sent to the Manager of Spectrum Engineering via email to freqplan@acma.gov.au by COB 24 March 2014

Effective consultation

The ACMA is committed to ensuring the effectiveness of its stakeholder consultation processes, which are an important source of evidence for its regulatory development activities. To assist stakeholders in formulating submissions to its formal, written consultation processes, it has developed the following guide: Effective consultation: A guide to making a submission. This guide provides information about the ACMA’s formal, written, public consultation processes and practical guidance on how to make a submission.

Publication of submissions

Due to the technical nature of the revision to the RALI submissions received will be discussed directly with relevant stakeholders and will not be published by the ACMA.

Release of submissions

Any submissions provided to the ACMA may be released under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (unless an exemption applies) or shared with other Commonwealth government agencies and certain other parties under Part 7A of the Australian Communications and Media Authority Act 2005. The ACMA may also be required to release submissions for other reasons including for the purpose of parliamentary processes or where otherwise required by law (for example, under a court subpoena). While the ACMA seeks to consult submitters of confidential information before that information is provided to another party, the ACMA cannot guarantee that confidential information will not be released through these or other legal means.
