Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Restriction on powers of revocation and modification

7(1)The conditions that OFCOM may include in a grant of recognised spectrum access include conditions restricting the exercise by them of their power to revoke or modify the grant.

(2)Those conditions include, in particular, conditions providing that the grant may not be revoked or modified except—

(a)with the consent of the holder of the grant; or

(b)in such other circumstances and on such grounds as may be specified in the conditions.

(3)The circumstances or grounds may relate to matters relevant for the purposes of any enactment, whether relating to wireless telegraphy or not (and may, in particular, be made dependent on the exercise of a statutory discretion under any enactment).

(4)Nothing in a condition included in a grant of recognised spectrum access restricts the power of OFCOM to revoke or modify a grant of recognised spectrum access, if it appears to OFCOM to be necessary or appropriate to do so—

(a)in the interests of national security;

(b)in the interests of the safety of the public or public health; or

(c)for the purpose of securing compliance with an international obligation of the United Kingdom.

(5)“Enactment” has the same meaning as in the Communications Act 2003 (c. 21).
