In the document, Potraz said it might prepare channelling plans to provide information on the need for the efficient use of allocated frequency bands.
"The main use of channelling plans is to facilitate the design and specification of radio systems and equipment and in the evaluation of technical applications for new radio facilities or modification to radio systems.
"The channelling plans will differ according to the type of radio systems across different frequency bands," the regulator said.
"The Authority may amend the channelling plans specified if it finds that the channelling plans do not suit its intended purpose or there have been related changes nationally or internationally."
Potraz also said that frequency assignments must provide for the normal operation of existing radio systems as well as new systems with a specified performance.
On the other hand it wants frequency assignment procedures to ensure the permissible level of interference among radio communication services, among stations within each service, as well as efficient utilisation of the radio frequency spectrum.
The regulator added: "The assignment process includes the analysis of requirements for proposed radio services together with any relevant studies, and the assignment of frequencies in accordance with ZNFAP."
