Communication Division
Radio communications Section
The Radio Communications Section is responsible for the management of all national resources related to broadcasting and telecommunication services. The Section is composed of two sub-units; these are the Resource Management Unit and the Advisory and Planning Unit.

As its designation suggests the primary role of the Resource Management Unit is the administration of telecommunication related national resources such as frequency spectrum, numbering codes, call signs etc. With the proliferation of new technologies and the increased growth in requirement for telecommunication services, the demand of frequency spectrum, numbering and the other related national resource has augmented manifold. It is therefore imperative that these resources be managed and utilized more efficiently, economically rationally and optimally. The Resource Management Unit is also responsible for all engineering field activities relating to frequency spectrum users including enforcement activities for such.

In turn, the primary role of the Advisory and Planning Unit is the identification and study of International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Radio Regulations (RR), best practices and standards that guides the administration of these national resources and the planning, marketing, strategizing and engineering of such. Basically, the Advisory and Planning Unit provides the administrative guidelines and the Resource Management Unit enforces them.

However, although the above briefly describes the core Radio Communications Section’s functions of the responsibilities, a summary of the overall functions are as follows:
  • Process simple licenses (those requiring spectrum)
  • Conduct radio communication inspections
  • Numbering administration Spectrum management (assignment)
  • Allocation of call signs, MMSI etc
  • Maintenance of relevant databases for assignments of frequency, numbers, call signs, MSSI etc
  • Maintain a national frequency register
  • National Domain name registration and management
  • Registration, coordination and notification with the ITU (terrestrial and satellite)
  • Develop handbooks and conduct examination for radio telephone and amateur operators
  • Maintenance of database for certificate holders
  • Conduct spectrum monitoring according to ITU guidelines
  • Study monitoring reports
  • Investigate and resolve interference complaints
  • Identify and apply electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standards
  • Investigate and resolve RF safety complaints
  • Resource (spectrum & numbering) planning and engineering (terrestrial and satellite)
  • Application of ITU Radio Regulations and relevant international spectrum management standards
  • Study international regulations
  • Identify needs and best practices
  • Assist in drafting the relevant regulations
  • Establish national plans for the usage of spectrum, numbering etc
  • Resource marketing, strategy and analysis
The Structure


In addition to the above, the Radio Communications Section also participates in international conferences and implements their results. Technical support is also provided to Seychelles Bureau of Standards (SBS) and advice to Government departments and parastatals on their national resource requirements such as frequency spectrum.

National Resource Applications/Procedures and Information

Please refer to the Download area

Promote the expansion of a nationwide, all pervasive wireless network for Internet access:

Reviewing of the wireless network policy, as per international best practices, to allow all ISPs to have open access to frequencies (sharing of frequency band) required for the setting up of wireless networks (namely the frequencies related to WiFi). This is in order that all possible ISPs (present or prospective) can contribute to the deployment of wireless access nationwide. Work will also have to be undertaken with all stakeholders, in particular ISPs, to collaborate in the resolution of interference and other issues resulting from the opening up (sharing) of the designated frequency band.
