The MCA is proposing a number of amendments to the general authorisation licensing framework as applicable to radiocommunications apparatus, namely, the General Authorisations (Radiocommunications Apparatus) Regulations (S.L.399.40). Whilst most of the amendments need to be adopted in order for Malta to meet its international spectrum-management obligations, other amendments are being proposed for adoption as a national initiative. These initiatives include the establishment of new licensing frameworks for certain radiobeacons, such as Personal Locator Beacons, and specific satellite earth stations.
Interested stakeholders are invited to submit their opinions in writing by not later than 12:00hrs on 27 October 2017. The responses received will assist the MCA to finalise its proposals to Government with respect to the licensing of radiocommunications apparatus.
