UK: Ofcom takes over aeronautical radio licensing

On 2 November, the UK’s spectrum regulator, Ofcom, took over responsibility for issuing and administering aeronautical radio licences from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The CAA will, however, continue to be responsible for assigning radio frequencies to aeronautical stations, as that is part of the CAA’s statutory duties along with issuing Air Navigation Order safety approvals.

Ofcom is responsible for authorising all civil use of the radio spectrum. Building the administration of aeronautical radio licensing into Ofcom’s wider licensing activity will enable it to deliver some additional service benefits to users, such as consolidating their radio licensing accounts.
