The issue

As an Australian Government agency, the ACMA is required to define and implement, where feasible, charges for recovering the costs of its products and services, in accordance with the Australian Government Charging Framework.

We are consulting on our activities for radiocommunications, telecommunications and broadcasting services that are subject to charging arrangements. 

There are a number of new charges, including:

  • charges for the issue and variation of an area‑wide receive licence (AWRL) to support the allocation of area-wide licences (AWL) in the 3.8 GHz band in metropolitan and regional areas 
  • charges associated with the ACMA considering applications for amateur radio recognition of prior learning, and for issuing amateur radio qualifications and call signs.

The amateur radio charges support the proposed new amateur radio qualification framework and assessor accreditation arrangements, on which the ACMA is currently consulting.

Full information can be found in our draft 2023–24 Fees for Service Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (Fees CRIS), which reflects the financial and non-financial performance information and details our fees for 2023–24, and our accompanying consultation paper.
