Licensing

Once the Minister for Communications, Information Economy and the Arts assigned parts of the radiofrequency spectrum to the ABA for planning and management, the ABA then established planning priorities between areas of Australia. The ABA prepared a frequency allotment plan determining the number of channels available in particular areas and is preparing licence area plans determining the number and characteristics of broadcasting services to be available in an area.

In performing these tasks, the ABA must undertake wide public consultation and have regard to a range of demographic, social and economic factors within a particular area.
