Legal entities for the purposes of the Radiocommunications Act 1989 (PIB 47)
PIB 47 provides information to assist in identifying whether a party has legal entity status and is therefore capable of holding a licence or management right under the Radiocommunications Act 1989.
PIB 47 is designed to assist in the identification of the legal entity status of new clients before they can be recorded in the Register of Radio Frequencies (the Register). Under no circumstance will the Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) grant a licence to an organisation that does not have legal entity status.
This document is intended as a guide only and is not definitive. There are a number of entities created under various Acts of Parliament. Where an applicant is claiming legal status by virtue of legislation, they need to be referred to RSM for research and confirmation before they are entered into the Register.
