The Draft Rules for use of the radio frequency spectrum for terrestrial networks allowing the provision of electronic communications services after issuance of authorisation has been developed in connection with the provisions of Art. 30, item 8 and Art. 66a of the Law on Electronic Communications (LEC) (amend. and supplemented State Gazette, issue 20 dated 9 March 2021). Pursuant to art. 66a, para. 1 of the Electronic Communications Act, the use of the radio frequency spectrum – free, after registration or after issuance of authorisation shall be determined by rules.
These rules lay down the conditions for the use of radio frequency spectrum and technical parameters for operation of terrestrial networks allowing the provision of electronic communications services after authorisation.
Draft Rules for use of spectrum for terrestrial networks allowing the provision of electronic communications services after authorisation
The Draft Rules shall provide the necessary conditions for applying the principle of technological neutrality in the use of radio frequency spectrum within the ranges of 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1.5 GHz, 2 GHz, 2.6 GHz, 3.6 GHz and 26 GHz bands, introducing the provisions of the European Commission (EC) decisions for the harmonised use of these ranges.
The document also includes information on the mode of use of the frequency resource (after issuing authorisation to use radio frequency spectrum), indicates the applicable technical standards, observing which ensures compliance of radio equipment with the essential requirements laid down in Directive 2014/53/EU.
