415 kB

Summary

In response to the government’s Exposure Draft of the Radiocommunications Bill 2017 (the exposure draft of the Bill) and the final report on the Review of the ACMA, the ACMA will be undertaking substantial stakeholder consultation as it designs and then settles on the new equipment rules framework. This paper—available in the Downloads table above—is the first stage of this consultation process.

The paper details:

  • existing arrangements for technical regulation
  • the ACMA’s proposed approach to implement the exposure draft of the Bill
  • concepts and design considerations that will enable the ACMA to prepare equipment rules should the exposure draft of the Bill be passed by Parliament.
