ANFR manages requests for frequency assignments to satellite systems. More precisely, ANFR receives the requests, checks whether they comply with the Radio Regulations and the French National Table of Frequency Allocations and then sends them to the ITU.
With the support of the requesting entities, ANFR ensures the regulatory follow-up of the satellite networks communicated to the ITU by France, either on its own behalf or on behalf of some intergovernmental organisations.
ANFR also conducts the necessary bilateral coordination process in cooperation with the entities having requested frequency assignments so that they can operate their satellite systems. ANFR finally processes, on behalf of the Minister in charge of electronic communications, the requests for authorization to operate the frequency assignments with an actual satellite.
