21 Apr South Africa; Mozambique: ICASA agrees frequency coordination with Mozambique’s ARC
The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has signed a technical agreement with the Autoridade Reguladora Das Communicacoes, the communications regulatory authority of Mozambique. This agreement of co-operation and co-ordination concerns spectrum management for telecommunications and broadcasting services. A Technical Committee will be established to address matters of common interest on radio frequency co-ordination.
The two regulators will work together to ensure, among others, co-operation on the co-ordination, control and management of radio transmission spill-overs, and the exchange of information and expertise in the field of radio communications. The agreement is a culmination of the Memorandum of Agreement by the two countries’ governments in June 2015, aimed at finding new approaches and strategies for consolidating, expanding and deepening areas of economic development, industrial and trade co-operation between Mozambique and South Africa.
