Ofcom confirms approach for recovering cost of satellite filing work

Friday 15 March 2019 | 11:16 CET | News

UK regulator Ofcom has published a statement confirming its approach for recovering the cost of satellite filing work from industry. Ofcom has decided to impose charges from 01 April 2019. Existing filings received on or before 31 March will not incur charges for any part of their management. 

Satellite operators use the satellite filing tool to get international recognition of the spectrum access and orbital positions needed for their satellites. The process is managed by Ofcom for organisations headquartered or registered in the UK, and this work has historically been publicly funded. Parliament has now put legislation in place to allow Ofcom to charge for this work.
