What the register is for
The Register of Radiocommunications Licences is a database of licensed radio services in Australia.
You may wish to use the register so you can:
- find out the details of a particular licence
- ask a licence holder if you can use their licence
- ask a licence holder if they will trade their licence with you
- reduce the risk of possible interference between licence holders
You can also use the database to check if your own details are correct. If they aren't, you can ask us to update your details.
Accredited persons can follow the business operating procedure to correct a record.
More information about what is on the register is in the Register of Radiocommunications Licences Determination 2017.
