Addressing participants at the workshops, the Director General of the NCA, Mr. Joe Anokye disclosed that frequencies are national assets held in trust by the NCA and assigned to specific users for a period subject to specific conditions. He said “the frequencies are not assigned to users in perpetuity.

As such, it is important that you understand the terms and conditions of your Authorisation so that you comply with them. We do not want any Authorisation Holder to claim ignorance of the conditions for operating the service. As a matter of fact, it is unpleasant for us to suspend stations and revoke Authorisations; our duty is to enforce the law”.

Mr. Joe Anokye NCA Director GeneralMr. Joe Anokye Addressing Participants

 

The Director General added that, “the NCA has invested in Broadcasting Monitoring Systems, Spectrum Monitoring tools and commenced automation of the spectrum management processes... to ensure consistency, transparency and accountability which are part of our guiding core values”.

The Executive Secretary of the National Media Commission, George Sarpong, who spoke on broadcast content regulation, urged the participants to note that “content must not condone violence, anti-social behavior”.

He further advised the Authorisation Holders to note that programs content should not encourage crime, racial or political tension.

The Electronic Communications Act, 2008 (Act 775) and the Electronic Communications Regulations 2011 (L.I. 1991) require Holders of frequency Authorisations to abide by specific regulations and conditions, failing which the Authorisation may be suspended or revoked.

The workshops were thus intended to assist the successful Applicants gain a clear understanding of the regulations and conditions to facilitate compliance. The presentations and discussions addressed related issues including:

  • Understanding the legal and regulatory framework of FM Radio Broadcasting.

  • Test Transmission Authorisation.
