Facility installation permit | ACMA

Facility installation permit

A facility installation permit is a written instrument issued by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA) to a licensed carrier, providing authorisation for that carrier to proceed with installation of one or more specified telecommunications facilities in circumstances where it has not obtained all the administrative authority and proprietor approvals required under relevant state and territory legislation.

The ACMA is empowered to issue such permits on a case-by-case basis under Division 6 of Part 1 of Schedule 3 to the Telecommunications Act 1997 (the Act). The effect of the permit is that it would be assumed that the required administrative authority and proprietor approvals had been given for the installation of the specified facilities.

Carriers seeking to apply to the ACMA for a facility installation permit should refer to the guide and application form below.
