EXPLANATORY NOTE

These Regulations amend the Wireless Telegraphy (Register) Regulations 2012 (S.I. 2012/2186, amended by S.I. 2013/640 and S.I. 2015/1400), which require the Office of Communications (“OFCOM”) to establish and maintain a public register of relevant information relating to certain classes of wireless telegraphy licences and grants of recognised spectrum access.

These Regulations add licences in respect of wireless telegraphy stations operating within certain frequency bands.
