UK Spectrum Policy Forum - Plenary

Agenda to follow.

The role of the Plenary

The Plenary, like the individual Cluster Groups, is open to all users of spectrum with the aim of promoting mutual understanding and collaboration across a full range of spectrum interests. The purpose of the plenary and cluster groups is to:

  • build a shared and factually based understanding of "over the horizon" spectrum opportunities and threats (typically beyond 2020 timescales)
  • to work together to identify the key issues which need to be resolved, including policy initiative, implementation plans and future changes to UK or international regulations which will enable spectrum-users to make the most of the opportunities and to minimise the threats
  • review and debate key deliverables and recommendations from the work of the three SPF Cluster Groups, including external studies

We will do this by:

  • Discussing in plenary and cluster group meetings, and online forums
  • Commissioning expert advice
  • Engaging with Government to ensure Ministers have clear evidence to support action on issues identified by the SPF, and to inform Ministers on the implementation of the UK Spectrum Strategy
  • Engaging with Government as they develop positions for WRC19 and subsequent WRCs
  • Engaging with Ofcom to help inform their implementation of the Ofcom Spectrum Management Strategy within the UK Spectrum Strategy
