2 Apparatus Assignment and
3 Class Assignment.

assignments and class assignments:
• A spectrum assignment authorises a person to use one or more specified
frequency bands for any purpose consistent with the assignment conditions;
• An apparatus assignment authorises a person to use one or more specified
frequency bands to operate a network facility of a specified kind or for a
• A class assignment authorises use by any person of a specified frequency
band for a specified purpose. No fee is payable and is valid until cancelled in
writing by the Commission.
Note that unless exempted by the Minister, the CMA prohibits any person from
using any part of the spectrum unless that person holds a spectrum assignment,
an apparatus assignment or the use of the spectrum is subject to a class
assignment. The penalty for contravening this section is a fine not exceeding
RM500,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years or both.
