Radio regulations treaty agreed

The Australian Government Joint Standing Committee on Treaties has tabled Report 195, concerning three treaty actions: revisions to the Radio Regulations which regulate radio spectrum and satellite orbits, a film co-production agreement with Malaysia and a new tax information exchange agreement with Timor-Leste.

The revisions to the Radio Regulations make a number of improvements to the management of the radio spectrum and satellite orbits, which are used to support everything from mobile phones to satellite communications. The improvements include providing greater bandwidth to support 5G mobile broadband services, enhanced connectivity on aeroplanes and ships, and expanded global maritime distress and safety system satellite services.

The Joint Standing Committee on Treaties is a federal government appointment passed in 2019, currently under the committee chair of David Sharma MP.
