On 17 September 2007, the Minister of Communications, Minister Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri, published Policies and Policy directions drafted in terms of section 3(1) and (2) of the EC Act.
This came after a public consultative process the DoC conducted on draft Policies and Policy Directions. In its written submission, the NAB outlined that it supported the Minister's proposed policy directions which stated that in preparation for the national radio frequency plan, or appropriate modification to any existing radio frequency plan, ICASA must be guided by the decisions to be taken at the World Radio Conference 2007(WRC-07). The NAB further added that the Minister should further direct ICASA to also take into account the decision of the Regional Radio Communication Conference 2006 (RRC-06), regarding radio spectrum frequency, when preparing the national radio frequency plan.
