Renewal of Irish Amateur Radio Licences

In June 2009 the Wireless Telegraphy (Amateur Station Licence) Regulations 2009 came into force which changed individual Amateur Station License from annual licences to lifetime licences.

Whilst the licences are lifetime licences, under the regulations licensees are required to confirm the details of their licence to ComReg every five years.

ComReg will begin advising licensees how to comply with this requirement in 2014. The Irish Radio Transmitters Society have been told by ComReg that they have yet to determine how this process will take place but will endeavour to make it as smooth as possible.
