Submission of an application for individual authorisation

General information


Radio frequencies can only be used based on individual authorisation to use radio frequencies, unless the law provides otherwise. The award of the individual authorisation to use radio frequencies is governed by:

1. Act No. 127/2005 Coll., on electronic communications and amending certain related acts (Act on Electronic Communications), as amended (hereinafter referred to as the “Act”), in Section 17 to Section 19b of which the principles are laid down for the award of individual authorisation to use radio frequencies,

2. the frequency band allocation plan (National Frequency Table) issued in Decree No. 105/2010, which was published in the Collection of Laws on 19th April 2010, Chapter 38,

3. the radio spectrum utilisation plan published in Chapter 14/2005 of the Telecommunication Bulletin (Telekomunikační věstník) (common part) and in the chapters of the Telecommunication Bulletin specified here (annexes),

4. Government Order No. 154/2005 Coll., on determining the amount and method of calculating charges for using radio frequencies and numbers, as amended,

5. the obligations arising from the Czech Republic’s membership of international organisations (the decisions and recommendations of CEPT/ECC, ETSI standards, ITU recommendations etc. are taken into consideration in frequency planning).


Where awarding of the individual authorisation is necessary, CTU will decide upon the award to any provider of the network or service of the electronic communications according to the general authorisation or to an entrepreneur using these networks or services or to a person not pursuing business activities in accordance with the requirements ensuring effective use of the radio frequencies. The decision on the award will be delivered upon an application in writing filed to CTU.



CTU collects the administrative charges for awarding a decision on the individual authorisation to use the radio frequencies, to extend the validity period or to make changes, doing so in accordance with Act No. 634/2004 Coll., on administrative charges, as amended (hereinafter the Act).

The charges for using the radio frequencies are collected by CTU according to Article 24 of the Act.


How to pay charges


Change, extension of validity period and withdrawal of individual authorisation

  • In case of any change of the technical specifications i.e. parameters stated in Measure of General Nature No. OOP/13/06.2008-6, it is required to file a new application with all the requested data according to the principles. In other situations (change in name of the applicant, extension of the validity period etc.) it can be applied in the form of a letter (in writing, through data mailbox or electronically with the electronic signature).
  • The application for an extension of the validity period of the individual authorisation must be delivered to CTU not later than one month prior to the date of expiry.
  • The extension of the validity period can be decided upon by CTU after the payment of the respective administration charge during the validity period of the previous authorisation. According to Article 71 of the Administrative Code CTU is obliged to deliver the decision without delay. If it is    not possible to decide immediately, the decision will have to be delivered not later than 30 days from the initiation of the proceeding. The proceeding is considered initiated at the date of delivery of the application to CTU. This period can be extended for up to 30 days, if other acts in the administrative proceeding are deemed necessary. However, the applications are decided upon according to the delivery order of the applications.
  • If the application will be delivered to CTU just before the date of expiry of the authorisation, CTU may not be able to deliver the decision during the validity period of the authorisation. The applicant will be warned that an application for a new authorisation will have to be submitted and the payment of the respective administration charge made. Before delivery of the decision the applicant (holder of the invalid authorisation by then) cannot use the respective radio frequencies. Use of the radio frequencies without the valid authorisation is an administrative offence according to Article 118 or 119 of the Electronic Communications Act on and can be fined according to the respective provisions of this Act.
  • In case of change of the holder of the authorisation (transfer of the individual authorisation) a submission of a common application of both current and new holder is required. The application with all the technical parameters is only required if there is some change in these specifications.
