Guidelines for Local Government

Following the 2004 revision of the Australian Communication Industry Forum (ACIF) Code, the MCF developed Guidelines for Local Government – ACIF Code in January 2006.

During the 2011 revision of the ACIF Code, the Code was updated and renamed the Mobile Phone Base Station Deployment Code 2011 (referred to as the “Deployment Code”). The Deployment Code came in to effect on 1July 2012.
The MCF is working on providing information for key stakeholders, including local government, which explains how the Code works and provides details on the processes that the carriers must follow. It will also provide information about how local government can participate in the Code processes.
The Guidelines will be available here as soon as they have been completed.
