A publisher who wants to disseminate their radio programming over digital broadcasting must first obtain the license to disseminate radio programming over digital broadcasting in an individual geographical area, allowing them to digital their programming over the network and in the area for which the license was given.
In accordance with Article 104 of the Media Act licenses to disseminate over digital broadcasting are awarded by the Agency after a completed public tender, while taking into account the provisions of the Electronic Communications Act. The conditions and the measures for selecting the providers are defined by the Agency with the approval of the Broadcasting Council. The public tender is launched with a decision published in the Official Gazette of RS, while the Agency also publishes on its website the tender documentation. The public tender procedure is administered by a special impartial commission appointed by the Agency's Director, while the Broadcasting Council gives a detailed recommendation for selection after reviewing the tenders and the commission's report. The Agency then awards a license for dissemination on the area under tender with a decision issued in an administrative procedure.
The current and the past public tenders for obtaining the license to disseminate radio programming over digital broadcasting are available on this link.
Publishers who are interested in obtaining the license, can also submit a proposal to the Agency for holding a public tender. Besides the interest of the publishers, the Agency must also take into account the available capacities when holding the public tender.
