The RSPG's role
The RSPG contributes to the development of a Radio Spectrum Policy in the EU taking into account not only technical parameters, but also economic, political, cultural, strategic, health and social considerations. The high-level advisory group also considers the various potentially conflicting needs of radio spectrum users with a view to ensuring that a fair, non-discriminatory and proportionate balance is achieved. The RSPG can also be requested by the European Parliament and/or the Council, in addition to the Commission, to issue an opinion or write a report on specific Radio Spectrum Policy issues relating to electronic communications.
Members of the advisory group
The Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG) was established following the adoption of the Radio Spectrum Decision. The members of the Group are representatives of the Member States and of the Commission. In addition, representatives of the EEA countries, the candidate countries, the European Parliament, the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) and the European Telecommunications Standardisation Institute (ETSI) attend as observers.
