Radiocommunications Agency

The Radiocommunications Agency is an Executive Agency of the United Kingdom Department of Trade and Industry.

The agency is responsible for the management of the non-military radio spectrum in the United Kingdom, which involves international representation, commissioning research, allocating spectrum and licensing its use, and keeping the radio spectrum free from unauthorised use through enforcement.

The Agency's headquarters are in London, England; it also has five regional offices throughout England and one each in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Radiocommunications Agency is one of five regulatory bodies that will merge in December 2003 to form Ofcom, a single regulator for the United Kingdom's communications sector.
