Applications open for radio programming licences

Published 17.05.2018

FICORA invites applications for radio programming licences for the licence period starting in 2020.

All licences for analogue radio broadcasting are now available for application. The new 10-year licence period starts in January 2020.

The available frequency blocks are defined in FICORA Regulation 74 (in Finnish). The deadline for applications is on Tuesday July 31, 2018 at 11.59 pm.

FICORA grants the licences if there are enough frequencies in the frequency block in question, in other words if there is only one applicant per frequency. However, if there are several applicants or if the decision would have a significant impact on the general development of the communications market, the licence decision is made by the Government. Both authorities will grant the programming licences at the same time.
