The European Parliament, Commission and Member States' representatives have agreed on the content of legislation to implement the RSPP, which is due to run from 2012 to 2015. We outlined the major policy objectives of the RSPP in our May 2011 bulletin, but it essentially aims to set European radio policy, harmonising spectrum use throughout Europe and ensuring efficient allocation of wireless spectrum resources.

The draft decision was approved by the Permanent Representatives Committee of the Council on 28 October, but has yet to be approved by the Industry, Research and Energy Committee of the European Parliament.
