Licence Compliance enforced by ICASA

July 25, 2011

ICASA are now implementing enforcement for all licensees, in respect of both reporting requirements and other ad hoc requirements such as notifications of change of shareholders or contacts.

WAPA’s regulatory advisor, Dominic Cull from Ellipsis Regulatory Solutions, recently met with the new head of the compliance division at ICASA, Godfree Maulana, to discuss some of the challenges facing licensees in compliance matters.

ICASA feels that current levels of compliance are lacking and are intent on cleaning up the licence database. WAPA is calling on its members to comply with the reporting requirements or the ad hoc requirements and will send out advisories in this regard.

There will be a workshop on Licence Compliance presented at the WAPA General Meeting to be held at iWeek 2011. Ellipsis will run members through the Compliance Manual Regulations and the various annual reporting requirements set out therein, including the financial reports and payment of fees, compliance with the End-User and Subscriber Service Charter, and confirmation under the Standard Terms and Conditions.

If you are a WAPA member, sign up here to register for the WAPA General Meeting, to be held on Wed, 21 September, 14:30 – 16:00 in Centurion.
