New Zealand -- Allocation Plan for Satellite Opportunities

 In June 2004, the Ministry of Economic Development (the “Ministry”) in New Zealand released a consultation paper concerning satellite opportunities in that country.  Interested parties were invited to make submissions.  Prior to releasing this consultation paper, New Zealand had initiated a satellite coordination process through the ITU-R and had secured access to certain allotments, filing rights for a satellite in an assigned slot (the “NZLSAT filings”)  and filing rights for satellites in unplanned bands.


In November 2004, the Ministry released an Allocation Plan for satellite opportunities in New Zealand.  This allocation plan sets out the process through which the Ministry will consider applications from third parties for access to the allotments secured by New Zealand, the NZLSAT filings, and New Zealand’s filing rights in unplanned bands.


The Allocation Plan also included an Invitation to Submit Applications for access to the allotments, the NZLSAT filings, or the filing rights in other unplanned bands.  A link to the Allocation Plan is set out below.
