New Register of Radio Frequencies

The current Register of Radio Frequencies (RRF), previously known as SMART, has been in operation since 2005. This register provides users with a system that allows them to oversee their Management Rights, as well as apply for, and manage, Spectrum Licences and Radio Licences required to undertake their operations.

The system has had regular upgrades since its original deployment; however, it is now entering its final years of service.

This provides the Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) team with an opportunity to engage with users to identify system shortfalls and ways to improve the online facility.

We will be using a number of engagement channels to hear your feedback and understand what the industry would like to see in a new register.

Initial engagement will seek to understand how the system is currently used, as well as identify issues that are encountered.

Further consultation with industry to establish views and document requests for new or improved system functions will also take place.

While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to deliver on everything the industry requests, we want to ensure that you have the opportunity to shape the new system’s usability and functionality.

We look forward to working with you as we set out on this new phase in RSM’s mission of managing radio spectrum efficiently and effectively for New Zealand.
