By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:

The draft law "On the Radio Frequency Spectrum" has been approved and adopted at the third regular session of the Parliament of Turkmenistan of the sixth convocation, the Turkmen government said in a statement.

The law defines the legal fundamentals for the management, use and supervision of the use of the radio frequency spectrum in the territory of Turkmenistan.

The document is intended to supplement the country's current legal and regulatory acts defining general rules for licensing activities in the field of communications, certifying communications equipment and services, bringing radio electronic equipment and high-frequency devices through the customs border of Turkmenistan, as well as regulating relations between owners of telecommunication systems and national operators of telecommunications services.

The radio frequency spectrum is the national resource of Turkmenistan, and therefore it is necessary to use it rationally and effectively, the message says. The radio frequency spectrum is a set of radio frequencies within the limits established by the International Telecommunication Union, which can be used for the operation of radio electronic equipment or high frequency devices.
