Executive summary

The ACMA is seeking comment on proposed changes to a number of Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instructions (RALIs). Specifically, updates are proposed to:

  • RALI MS 33 and RALI MS 34 to support operation in underground environments
  • RALI MS 35 to include additional radar sites at the request of the Department of Defence
  • RALI MS 38 to remove coordination requirements for body scanners which are now authorised via class licence and to update the coordination zones and protection requirements for SRS.

Additionally, RALI FX 21 has been updated to remove the channel arrangements that applied before 31 January 2016, which are now superseded.

This work was foreshadowed in the Frequency Coordination Requirements Review Work Program, released by the ACMA in September 2018.

Issue for comment

The ACMA welcomes comments from stakeholders on the proposed updates to RALIs MS 33, MS 34, MS 35 and MS 38.
