ProjTitle.icon 7. International Coordination of Frequencies of Broadcasting Services

7-1 CST registers frequency assignments and lists them in the ITU Master International Frequency Register (MIFR). Recorded frequency assignments are granted international recognition that protects them from harmful interference. Uncoordinated assignments shall not cause harmful interference and shall not require protection against harmful interference from a station operating in accordance with the relevant provisions. CST, in coordination with the General Authority for Audiovisual Media (GCAM), reviews the BR International Frequency Information Circular (BRIFIC) issued by the International Telecommunication Union to protect the Kingdom's internationally coordinated assignments  in the Master International Frequency Register and Broadcasting Plans from harmful interference in accordance with the provisions of the Radio Regulations and regional agreements.
