Our role in correcting the register

Section 153 of the Radiocommunications Act (the Act) sets the process for making a correction to the register.

We can correct the register when we become aware that something is wrong. We can also correct it if we receive an application:

  • from the license holder
  • from someone who the license holder authorises to operate radiocommunications devices under the licence

We notify license holders where the correction is to coordinates for a shared site. Under section 111 of the Act, we have to tell all affected license holders of our intention to vary the coordinates.

When we make a correction, we must give notice in writing to the licensee. We must also inform:

  • the applicant, if the licensee authorised them to operate a radiocommunications device under the licence
  • anyone who wants us to tell them about corrections to the register for a particular licence. A person must tell us in writing that they want use to notify them about a specific licence
