ACMA proposed single CLASS LICENCE to replace current individual NON-ASSIGNED licences.

The WIA has liaised extensively and productively over many months with the ACMA on the proviso that the WIA could only support a proposed class licence on a “no disadvantage” basis.

As this consultation has just been released by the ACMA, the WIA has yet to review the details embodied in the new proposal and will release an assessment as soon as practicable.
We look forward to engaging the support of our members for this consultation process.

Excellent news from ACMA. See below:
