An extension of the deadline for submissions on the Radiocommunications Bill 2017 has been announced by the Department of Communications and the Arts.

The new deadline is now 28 July 2017 at 5:00pm AEST.

In an email to stakeholders, the Department said that the extension came as a result of requests for an extended consultation period. "We acknowledge we provided a substantive consultation package and an extended period is appropriate to ensure you are able to fully consider the package and respond accordingly", the Department said.
