TELECOMMUNICATIONS REGULATORY AUTHORITY

PREFACE
Contain
The National Frequency Plan is prepared and issued in accordance with
Articles 46 and 47 of the Federal Law by Decree No. 3 of 2003 regarding
the Organization of Telecommunications Sector, as amended. The National
Frequency Plan is prepared in conformity with the International Regulations
governing radio spectrum i.e. the ITU Radio Regulations and the international
and regional agreements concluded or acceded to by the United Arab
Emirates.
The Coordination Committee established by United Arab Emirates Cabinet
Resolution No. 4/10/279 dated 2nd November 2014, has undertaken the
work on the National Frequency Plan. The National Frequency Plan and
its Table of National Frequency Allocation take into consideration the
04 Definitions existing and future requirements of the Radio Frequencies in the United
Arab Emirates.
08 Introduction The objective of the National Frequency Plan is to provide a framework for
the allocation and distribution of Radio Frequencies, and issuing Spectrum
08 Frequency bands and wavelength Regulations based on this National Frequency Plan.
