    RADIOCOMMUNICATIONS ASSIGNMENT AND LICENSING INSTRUCTIONS

    DISCLAIMER

    The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) advise that these instructions reflect the current policies of the ACMA.

    Prospective applicants for licences should take all necessary steps to ensure that they have

    access to appropriate technical and other specialist advice independently of the ACMA concerning their applications, the operation of radiocommunications equipment and services, and any other matters relevant to the operation of transmitters and services under the licences in question.

    The policies of ACMA and the laws of the Commonwealth may change from time to time,

    and prospective licensees should ensure that they have informed themselves of the current policies of ACMA and of any relevant legislation (including subordinate instruments). Prospective applicants for licences should not rely on statements made in these instructions about the policies that may be followed by other government authorities or entities, nor about the effect of legislation. These instructions are not a substitute for independent advice (legal or otherwise) tailored to the circumstances of individual applicants.

    Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instructions are subject to periodic review

    and are amended as ACMA considers necessary. To keep abreast of developments, it is important that users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edition.

    No liability is or will be accepted by the Minister or the Department of Communications,

    ACMA, the Commonwealth of Australia, or its officers, servants or agents for any loss suffered, whether arising directly or indirectly, due to reliance on the accuracy or contents of these instructions.

    Suggestions for improvements to Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instructions may be addressed to The Manager, Spectrum Engineering, ACMA at PO Box 78, Belconnen, ACT, 2616, or by e-mail to freqplan@acma.gov.au. It would be appreciated if notification to ACMA of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.
