10 Key Conditions To Note In Your FM Radio License/Authorisation

Frequencies are national assets held in trust by the NCA and assigned to specific users for a period subject to specific conditions. They are not assigned to users in perpetuity.

 

It is important that you understand the terms and conditions of your Authorisation so that you comply with them. NCA 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 NCA to suspend stations and revoke Authorisations; their duty is to enforce the law.
