Radio spectrum

We advise government on the allocation of New Zealand's radio spectrum and administer the Radiocommunications Act 1989 and supporting regulations.

We are committed to ensuring that our policy and planning processes, as well as our administration of the national Register of Radio Frequencies, licensing, compliance and enforcement, and radio frequency interference (RFI) investigation, are fast, simple and effective, and maximise the use of on-line services wherever possible.
