What type of radio licence from OFCOM do I need?
OFCOM – Delays in applications and responses

Due to high volumes of work, there may be delays in processing radio licence applications and responding to enquiries. However, OFCOM is still aiming to complete applications within their published turnaround times (See Section 4 of the Wireless Telegraphy (Licensing Procedures) Regulations 2010.)

Did you know that DCRS can assist you with your OFCOM radio licence and manage your renewals to ensure your frequencies are never revoked. Find out more here.
