The Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA) had representatives at recent consultation sessions in Sydney and Melbourne, held by the Department of Communications and the Arts to further explain to stakeholders important aspects of the new Radiocommunications Bill. The sessions have helped WIA’s Spectrum Strategy Committee to analyse the Bill information package in advance of preparing a comprehensive response.

The Department of Communications and the Arts’ Spectrum Reform Team used a slide show to present its information on the Bill and related material. You can download a copy below.

The Communications Minister, Senator the Hon Mitch Fifield, advises that the Government will later present a further Exposure Draft of the Bill to stakeholders for comment before finalising the legislation for introduction to parliament. The new Exposure Draft will be informed by stakeholder feedback from the initial consultation. Due to the number of requests for an extended consultation period, the closing date for submissions to the first stage of consultation has been extended to 28 July 2017, 5pm AEST. A WIA report on the Bill when it was released can be ready by clicking the following Link
