Apparatus licences available

Monday, 02 April, 2012

The ACMA is providing all 500 MHz spectrum licensees with the opportunity to apply for apparatus licences in the paired 500 MHz segments to replace device registration under their spectrum licences. This will allow for the continued operation of radiocommunications services after 31 May 2012.

Apparatus licences issued in accordance with these arrangements are intended to be direct replacements of existing device registrations. They can be issued before spectrum licence expiry on 31 May 2012 and licensees have been encouraged to apply for apparatus licences as early as possible.

Spectrum licences and device registrations will remain valid until 31 May 2012, with any apparatus licence issued before 31 May 2012 having a date of effect of 1 June 2012.

For further information about this process or the associated fee structure, please send an email to, with ‘500 MHz conversion’ in the subject line. Alternatively, call 1300 850 115.
