Links and support

There are many sources of information and support to help licensees transition to the new 400 MHz plan. The ACMA recommends users consider all the sources relevant to their circumstances. These include:

  • The Accredited Persons (AP) Scheme provides a market-based solution for frequency coordination. APs are authorised to issue frequency assignment certificates (FACs) for the operation of radio transmitters and receivers under apparatus licences. APs generally provide this service with a quick turnaround time.
  • The Australian Radio Communications Industry Association (ARCIA) is the peak national industry body representing the two-way and associated wireless radio communications industry in Australia. Equipment suppliers may provide information about the implications of the 400 MHz transition for their customers’ particular circumstances and, if required, help with equipment reprogramming.
  • The National Coordinating Committee for Government Radiocommunication (NCCGR) implements the National Framework to Improve Government Radiocommunications Interoperability 2010–2020 and advises government on the efficient use of spectrum. The NCCGR has drafted a set of guiding principles for assigning against the government 400 MHz spectrum allocation and produced a government spectrum plan for Government Services RALI:GS1. Licensees and users can also find information on government 400 MHz licence planning.
