Radio spectrum is a crucial, but finite resource for wireless communications. Smarter allocation is key to efficient use in Europe and internationally. See the web page of the European Commission: Radio spectrum: a vital resource in a wireless world.

The newsroom offers you the latest EU Commission activities regarding radio spectrum policy at European level, an important part of the Digital Agenda for Europe and the wider Europe 2020 growth strategy (EU2020).

In September 2010 the Commission proposed the first Radio Spectrum Policy Programme for the European Union. The proposal is available in 22 official EU languages; here to the English pdf version:

Proposal for a DECISION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL establishing the first radio spectrum policy programme; Brussels, 20.9.2010 COM(2010) 471 final (20 pages)

The proposal was accompanied by two Commission documents, SEC(2010) 1034 and SEC(2010) 1035. The procedure can be followed under number 2010/0252 (COD).
