Key documents

The issue

The accredited persons scheme (AP scheme) was established in 1996. It was created to make spectrum management more efficient by allowing accredited persons to perform specific activities. These activities include technical assessment, coordination and assignment.

The Radiocommunications Legislation Amendment (Reform and Modernisation) Act 2020 removes and replaces sections of the Radiocommunications Act 1992. Because of this, we need to make certain legislative instruments to preserve the operation of the AP scheme.

These draft instruments also include 2 major changes to the scheme:

  • removing the requirement for applicants to provide a Deed of Indemnity
  • introducing a new kind of accreditation – the Specific Licensing Accreditation.

Have your say

We welcome comments from interested stakeholders on the 4 draft instruments and changes to the AP scheme, as well as any other issues relevant to the scheme.

We also invite general comments on how to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the AP scheme and how to potentially broaden its scope.
