Tower Siting/Environmental Enforcement

Tower siting/environmental issues are generally handled by the relevant licensing bureau - the International, Media and/or Wireless Telecommunications Bureau - in the context of license application proceedings. Historically, the Commission has used informal techniques to resolve compliance issues in this area. However, where appropriate, licensing bureaus may refer cases to the Enforcement Bureau for investigation and possible enforcement action.

The Enforcement Bureau has responsibility for enforcement of Radio Frequency (RF) Safety rules. For more information, click here.
