ICASA’s Amended Radio Frequency
Spectrum Regulations, 2023
The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has introduced amendments to the Radio Frequency Spectrum Regulations, 2023. These amendments, made under specific sections of the Electronic Communications Act and ICASA Act, include the substitution of Annexure B of the regulations. Annexure B outlines apparatus exempt from radio frequency spectrum licenses, clarifying which radio apparatus can be used or possessed without the need for a license. The amendments emphasize compliance with Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and safety requirements as prescribed in ICASA’s official list of regulated standards. The Amended Radio Frequency Spectrum Regulations, 2023, are now in force upon publication in the Government Gazette.
