Remaking the VHF Marine Standard

The ACMA is consulting with stakeholders about a proposal to remake the standard that currently mandates a two-part industry standard for devices operating in the VHF maritime mobile bands.

RC-004, a committee established by Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand, has drafted three new industry standards to replace the two-part industry standard that was formally withdrawn in 2015.

The ACMA proposal is to remake the existing standard by adopting the three new industry standards and their European Telecommunications Standards Institute equivalents.

The ACMA is seeking comments from stakeholders by COB Friday, 24 August 2018.

More information is available on the ACMA website.
