Icasa’s Stakeholders Engagement Roadshow

Posted by radio On November - 6 - 2012

Since last month, ICASA has been engaging its stakeholders across the country through meetings and presentations of its 2012-2017 Strategy Plan to the National Community radio Forum (NCRF) and the South African Communications Forum. The road show also engaged postal, broadcasting, electronic communications services, electronic communications network licensees and radio frequency spectrum licensees in the Cape Peninsular and Kwa-Zulu Natal province. The ICASA Stakeholders Engagement Road-show is an attempt to address the shortcomings of previous stakeholders’ meetings that were held in Johannesburg, and were out of reach for smaller licensees and operators outside the Gauteng province.

In a statement, ICASA made clear its intention to reach out to other interested groups and formations that are not necessarily licensed entities but play an important role in the electronic communications sector. This includes the South African Revenue Services and the South African Police Services.  National, provincial and local governments play an important role with regard to the lay-out of communications infrastructure and the need for it to meet pressing socio-economic and developmental goals to achieve universal access and service will also be engaged. Other associations include the Internet Service Providers Association and the Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association. On the broadcasting front, the Authority also plans to reach out to associations representing broadcasting licensees and content producers such as the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), Independent Producers Organisation (IPO) and the South African Screen Federation (SASFED).

ICASA’s stakeholders’ engagement plan seeks to complement public awareness road-shows conducted in conjunction with the Department of Communications and the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Communications that are targeting grassroots communities across the country. The Authority’s plan does not exclude established and incumbent licensees who are often in a position to request and hold bilateral meetings with the authority when required.
