National Radio Frequency Plan

In essence this document – compiled by ICASA and approved by the Minister of Communications – shows the full range of spectrum bands and the uses to which they may be put in South Africa. Defining what can be done under what conditions is referred to as an allocation of frequency and the body of the document is a Table of Frequency Allocations.

[Note that when a frequency licenses is awarded to someone that is referred to as an assignment of frequency.]

The National Radio Frequency Plan (NRFP) takes it lead from the work of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) as well as efforts within Africa and the SADC region to harmonise spectrum usage.
