EETT has the following responsibilities regarding antenna constructions, the management and monitoring of radio spectrum, as well as radio equipment:

  • It grants licenses for land-based antenna constructions and regulates all relevant issues. In particular, it determines the licensing procedure, the conditions of co-location/sharing of facilities, the identification conditions of each antenna construction and the procedure for amending or revoking an antenna construction license.
  • It manages the part of the radio spectrum of its responsibility and defines which bands should be under a license or license exempt regime.
  • It grants, revokes or limits the number of rights of use for radio spectrum for the provision of electronics communications networks/services and the use of radio equipment. This responsibility includes the radio spectrum rights for research, experimental (with the exception of rights granted to public education institutions and state networks, in general), testing and demonstration purposes or relevant purposes, as well as rights for fixed/mobile links for PMSE. EETT is not the responsible authority for granting/amending for radio spectrum rights of use for the broadcasting radioservice of radio stations.
  • It monitors and inspects the use of the radio frequency spectrum. In detail:
    • It carries out inspections to record the status of the radio frequency spectrum at any given time with a view to ensure its more effective and proper management.
    • It carries out, on its own initiative or upon a complaint, inspections and imposes administrative penalties where it verifies the illegal use of radio spectrum.
    • It sets up inspection teams and implements an on-call system. As a priority, it promptly addresses any interferences that present a risk to the safety of human life and mainly concern the systems of air and sea navigation, as well as those of security and armed forces.
    • It installs fixed radio spectrum monitoring stations.
    • It assists investigating authorities with its technical experts participating in operations for the termination of illegal broadcasting.
  • It examines complaints about infringements of legislation on the installation and operation of antenna constructions and the use of radio spectrum.
  • It is responsible for issues relating to the making available on the market and operation of radio equipment. It supervises compliance with the legislative and regulatory framework.
  • It conducts hearings to verify infringements relating to licensing and operation of antenna constructions, the use of radio frequency spectrum, and also the making available on the market/use of radio equipment, imposing administrative penalties, where necessary.
EETT is not responsible for granting rights of radio spectrum use for state networks.
