Licensing procedure

Before installing and operating a land-based antenna construction, you need to acquire all necessary approvals/licences mostly provided for in Law 4635/2019 (Articles 20-38, Chapter K, Part A), as amended by Article 44 of Law 4821/2021 (Official Gazette 134/Α/31-07-2021) and Article 64 of Law 4690/2020 (Official Gazette 104/Α/30-05-2020), as well as the Regulation on licensing of land-based antenna constructions.

Submit an application for the granting of a licence for antenna constructions through EETT’s Electronic Application Submission System (SILYA) for antenna constructions (Regulation on the operation of the Electronic Application Submission System for Antenna Constructions). Relevant user manuals are available on SILYA portal.
