    Since 4 August 2012 only the operators (providing fixed telephony or fixed Internet) with a turnover of more than 50 million euro, are obliged to offer the social tariff for all their tariff plans.

    Operators with a turnover smaller than that amount may, after having made a declaration to BIPT, also offer the social tariff if they wish to do so.

  • FAQ

    A station authorisation is required for a radio (TX/RX), a DMA, an ELT (fixed or portable), a radar, a transponder, an ATC transponder, a TCAS, a VDR, a weather radio, a radio altimeter, a satellite communication system (SATCOM)...

  • FAQ

    The use of radios from the ground as an instructor or in AFIS (Aerodrome Flight Information Service) is possible but is subject to an authorisation of another category.

  • FAQ

    Both. An aeronautical authorisation is required when airborne but a maritime authorisation is required when on water. Furthermore, it can use a PLB: a device which can be activated by the user in case of emergency. That type of device is not subject to an authorisation in Belgium, provided that it is registered by the user via www.406registration.com.
