Special Event Broadcasting Licences

Please contact the Authority if you are considering broadcasting a special event, for example a sporting event or music event. Please give notice to the Authority at least 6 months prior to the event, with more notice if you can. This is due to the fact that a radio broadcast will require clearance from Ofcom (the UK Regulatory Body which regulates spectrum use on behalf of the Isle of Man) and may require an application to Ofcom for a licence issued under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006 (of Parliament).

If you are not an existing Broadcasting Act Licence holder then you will also be required to apply for a Broadcasting Act Licence issued under the Broadcasting Act 1993 (of Tynwald).
