RADIOCOMMUNICATION ACT

Notice No. SMSE-015-12 — Moratorium on new licence applications for fixed-satellite service and broadcasting-satellite service in Canada

The Consultation on the Licensing Framework for Fixed-Satellite Service and Broadcasting-Satellite Service in Canada closed on June 30, 2012. The intent of this notice is to advise that Industry Canada is imposing a moratorium on applications for these services until a decision on the licensing process is implemented. The moratorium takes effect on August 4, 2012.

The moratorium is limited to new licence applications for satellites for commercial FSS and BSS. Applications that are currently on hand with Industry Canada will continue to be considered. The moratorium does not apply to applications for replacement satellites, or to requests for modifications to existing licences or to approvals in principle, except those that require additional spectrum. Industry Canada will not consider applications for commercial FSS or BSS submitted during the moratorium, and applicants will be required to resubmit their applications when the moratorium is lifted. Notwithstanding the above, the Minister of Industry retains the right to issue a licence if circumstances require.

The moratorium will remain in effect until the new licensing process is defined in a Radio Policy document and Client Procedures Circular(s), which are expected to be published in the first quarter of 2013.
