A joint technical program seminar

Wednesday, 2nd November 2022

TelSoc, EA, IET, and IEEE members are able to register for free via the EA website.

We explore how technology drives the changes in the EMS regulations and we also examine the current national and international regulatory frameworks that exist to manage this. The presentation will also cover EMS trends in both technology and use, the interdependency between the technology and the use case, and how this creates a loop of ongoing change driven by a combination of new technology and use cases.

The key learning outcomes will be as follows:

  • Gain a basic understanding of the regulatory framework for the electromagnetic spectrum
  • Acquire an awareness of current trends in electromagnetic spectrum usage; and
  • Learn about the technology changes that have driven these trends.


This event is a joint technical program event, hosted by Robert Tait (TelSoc) and Engineers Australia. Free registration is available to members of TelSoc, IET, and IEEE. Registration is via the EA website link:
