Radio Spectrum

Compliance / Interference


The Spectrum Compliance Section is the subdivision within ComReg that is responsible for ensuring that all radio equipment is operated in accordance with current legislation and takes appropriate action where breaches are uncovered.

Low powered radio devices may be exempted from requiring a licence (e.g. car fobs, Bluetooth devices etc.) but in general operators of radio equipment must have a valid licence before using the equipment. Additionally, all operators of equipment must adhere to the conditions of the licence issued by ComReg in terms of power output, frequency output and geographical location of the equipment.

The Spectrum Compliance Section offers protection to the radio services of licensed operators by tracing and eliminating unwanted interference.
