Peculiarities of the license for on-air television/radio broadcasting!
It is important to know that these licenses are issued during the holding of a tender. In other words, for obtaining a license one ought to become a winner of the tender complementary to the fulfillment of licensing requirements.
The notice about the holding of a tender is published in certain media no later than 60 days before the deadline for submitting documents for license issuance. The time frame for announcement of results of the tender is no more than 60 days after the end of acceptance of documents for license issuance.
In order to participate you must pay a tender guarantee, which does not exceed 10 percent of the maximum license fee. When winning the tender, the tender guarantee is included to the total amount of the license fee payment.
Any business entity carrying out broadcasting activities is also obliged to register in the State Register of Television and Radio Organizations of Ukraine.
Licenses are issued by the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine.
Answers to frequently asked questions
For the licenses for satellite, cable, wire broadcasting - within a month from the date of submission of documents. For the licenses for satellite for on-air and multichannel broadcasting – not later than within 60 days from the date of the submitting of last application from other tender participants.
No, there is no difference, since the Law of Ukraine “On Television and Radio Broadcasting” does not stipulate separate procedures for each type, but regulates the licensing procedure for on-air broadcasting in general.
The term for which a license is issued is determined by the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine, but it cannot be less than: • for on-air broadcasting and multiprogram broadcasting in multi-channel channels - for 7 years; • for satellite, cable, wire broadcasting - for 10 years.
In the event if your company did not win the tender, the guarantee payment would not be returned to you but would be credited to the state budget.
