Current and past spectrum embargoes

We embargo parts of the spectrum to signal we are starting to plan for a radiofrequency band. 

RALI MS03: Spectrum Embargoes - contains:

  • instructions for each spectrum embargo
  • a list of all current and withdrawn (lifted) embargoes

About spectrum embargoes explains our process. You may be able to apply for an exemption.

Boundary data for all embargo areas

We provide spatial data for all embargo areas. Before using this data, refer to how to use spectrum boundary data:
