The procedure on granting concession is defined by the Act on electronic media and Act on concessions, and is carried out by the Agency for electronic media.
Technical background is based on the network coverage of the geographic area for which the concession is granted.
Person interested in getting the concession needs to send an application to the Agency for electronic media that will then initiate a public tender procedure in case technical requirements have been fulfilled.
Public tender for granting concessions in analogue technology is invited for every available radio frequency or more radio frequencies as a part of a single concession.
Public tender for granting concessions in digital technology is invited for every available bandwidth for individual radio and tv programme within the multiplex.
